I had that problem with another brand of American bourbon from Kentucky. I have two hypotheses, but I think I would say it was a counterfeit, even the Spanish tax label, when I ran it through the QR scanner, gave me negative information. Then it was when I took a small sip, it tasted like lightning, chemical, ethanol, something like cologne. I returned the bottle to the online store, and explained the problem. Regarding Woodford, I was intrigued that it was less full than the companion on the right. I decided to try it, and apparently, since I am no expert on bourbons, its taste seemed normal. It's amazing that you decide to consume a bottle that has been saved for years, and it turns out that you were saving a fake product for a special occasion. I want to put it as an example. Since I have been keeping distillates at home for a short time. I started somewhat evening.All good points, but I take it you don't like the taste of cologne?
