Blind Taste Test Results! A few buddies and I took part in a blind taste test over the weekend. The contestants were Eagle Rare, Old Forester, Makers 46 and Blantons. I had my buddies first try to guess the brand of bourbon they were tasting, then, name their favorite. The results were surprising!
Of the five votes for favorite, four named Eagle Rare as their favorite and the other vote was for Old Forester. I must say that the Eagle Rare is an 11 year single barrel and it is amazing, so it is not your standard Eagle Rare….But going into the taste test, I would have guessed that Blantons would have won in a landslide! But that is the fun of a blind taste test, there are no pre-conceived biases that cloud your taste buds!
