A relative novice, I’ve tried only 15- 20“quality”bourbons: Makers, Russell’s, Booker, Eagle, Buffalo….etc. I love Willett. The distinct progression of notes is stand alone entertainment.

I’m not understanding why this is rated so high as this is often rated as one of the worst bourbons around. Some love it but I found it to be a $5 bourbon in a $35 bottle. Looks cool on the shelf though.
The near consensus 5 star reviews are puzzling. This is widely considered to be one the most polarizing bourbons on the market. Some do love it, personally I found it to be a drain pour. Cool bottle, but bad juice
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
