Always gets high marks.

Something about Basil that seems to give a off flavor, Sharp maybe? Tastes are of course subjective.

Elmer T Lee almost single handed lee save the bourbon industry with single barrel bourbon. He was the head distiller at Blantons in the 80 s when bourbon was all but dead in favor of vodka. Elmer started the high end single barrel idea and as they say, the rest is history. Elmer just died late last year and Blantons has honored his contribution with a bourbon in his name. Just saying

Elijah Craig is very good also. 12 years old and less than 30 a bottle. Elijah's contribution is he was the first to char the inside of the barrels. Charcoal filtering. Very serious advance in whiskey aging.
