So, caveat. I like wheated bourbons more than others, I'm not a rye guy. I don't like the really sweet ones (though I moved from scotch to bourbon to get that little bit of sweetness in the flavor profile), but also don't like bourbons with too big a bite (think Bookers). My favorites to date (not counting either the Jefferson 18yo or the Elijah Craig 20yo) have been Blantons, Hirsch 25yo and 28yo (love that juice) and Pappy 20yo (I have some '09 and '10 stocks). I found the Elijah Craig 20yo a little 'light' for me. The color is dark, but it tastes 'light' if that makes any sense. Blind, I would have said the 20yo EC was a good single malt scotch. I found the Jefferson 18yo to have a little more bite and the flavor profile fit what I like a little more. Alone, I'm sure I would have enjoyed the 20yo EC, but against the 18yo Jefferson, I liked that one more. For the 20yo EC, says my barrel is #5. For both the 18yo Jefferson and the 20yo EC, says that they went in barrel in 1991.
