Never had BT and after a lot of positive reviews and my feel for trying all the best bourbon can offer i decided to try it.
To my disappointment apparently BT tastes pretty much just like Jim Beam. I actually took out my bottle of Jim Beam Black to compare both drinks side by side. Short of JBB being sweeter and having longer alcohol burn and finish in general and BT being more spicy they are identical. Don't get me wrong, i like Jim Beam but i guess i expected BT to be different. Kind of like Eagle Rare or Knob Creek but instead i got... .Jim Beam in different bottle lol.
Am i alone here on noticing how similar BT and JB are?
Where my expectations simply to high? and ER and KC beat the hell out of BT anytime of the day?
p.s. (just for the record) and even thou BT and JBB are very much alike when it comes to flavor imo JB is way better - it's sweeter, it's taste is "fuller" and finish is a lot longer and fulfilling. Just saying
