It is quite alright if you don't care for this bourbon. Everybody has their own taste and the world would be very boring if everyone agreed on a single taste. I found that letting it breath helps, but there are still some flavors there that if you don't like them, then you are still not going to like this bourbon. The copper is one of them. I have heard some people who have very well trained palates say they love this product and think it is the best bourbon ever. I don't agree with their taste, but I respect their opinions. To each their own, as they say.
