Bob, as you may have noticed, I have been rereviewing some bourbons to see if my tastes have changed over time. In the case of Rowan's Creek, I think more of it now than before........even though it is from the self-same bottle.
At this time, I find Noah's Mill to be a bit too dry and the alcohol a bit too prominent. It just doesn't please me as it once did. I think Rowan's is richer, creamier and more complex than Noah's and has replaced Noah's as my favorite among the KBD products.
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light. - Dylan Thomas
