I would have to say that this prooves that taste is subjective and that bourbon is ever changing. The bottle I tasted here was one that I had from my days at United Distillers and it is a very un-interesting bourbon. However, I have another bottle sent to me to taste for the tasting book that is much better and improved. I don't have my notes in front of me, but I remember it being a very good bourbon - much better than that older bottle.
