A couple of new bourbon or bourbon like beverages

Rowans Creek... a bourbon... 14 years old... sweet, caramel, toffee, spicy... a lot of vanilla, some fruit too. This is some good stuff. Needs an ice cube.

Michters Sour Mash.... no bourbon statement, no rye statement, no mash bill notes but nose is rye like, there is spice, vanilla and a rather thin body. Flavors run less vanilla and more caramel and fruit. Mellow. I could get used to this. Splash of water opens it up. This is supposed to be a throw back to Michters best seller before they went belly up in the late 80s. There is a lot of rye in this and a lot of corn in it... I guess its a blended american whiskey.
