    From memory , I can say the Basil Hayden is more complex and has more " body " . Would it not be advisable to compare two bourbons at the same time ? Would one reveal the other's qualities by contrast or get false results by lingering flavors the the other . I'll start this morning at the office and should have killed the bottle by bedtime with notes . HAR !

    Suntory is serious about thier whiskies. Now they have a guaranteed source for ex-bourbon barrels. It will be interesting to see what changes in the Beam line up they will make in the coming years. Bye - bye Devil's Cut!

    Isn't the devils cut fairly new ? What do you think about it ? You recommend me trying it ? Maybe you should stock up if you think it won't be available . It would be cool to have some bottles in your collection that aren't sold anymore .
