Friday Night Blind Tasting

When faced with a Friday evening with nothing going on, why not invite six friends over to drink some bourbon?

The Lineup:

We decided to grab five bourbons around the same proof, blind taste them, and discuss how they rank.

  • Orphan Barrel Forged Oak
    • 15 years aged
    • 90 proof
    • $69
  • Blade and Bow
    • No age statement
    • 91 proof
    • $50
  • Jefferson's Reserve
    • No age statement
    • 90.2 proof
    • $52
While each bourbon held its own as a respectable choice, Forged Oak was the unanimous favorite with Elmer T Lee as a popular second.
