I've tried it only recently and I heartily concur...that sure is some mighty nice bourbon. Great balance and really smooth drinking (especially since I don't like my whiskey on ice).
I vote 'yes'.

Al, you and I must have been in Ames and Ia. City at about the same time.
Iowa City, Iowa!
I'm not sure why mine doesn't show though, I have it in my profile...
Did it once a while back after reading some of the first reports about umami for the same reason's the OP is thinking.
Didn't really notice much of a difference in the beer except a sour salty thing. Never saw the need to repeat the trick.
They have definitely had a QC issue . . . I had a Black Forest Lager back in May at the Memphis Zoo Brew that was pure vinegar. Bad enough that the server was more or less warning . . Sample at your own risk.
Burtonise the liquor.
Floor malted Maris Otter pale malt only (low colour if you want to be authentic).
No other malts.
Perhaps a little sugar in the grist - up to 10%.
English hops - I suggest Kent Goldings - lots of them, but keep it balanced. (OG 1.070, 50 IBUs - or thereabouts)
English ale yeast that ferments dry - Nottingham is pretty reliable
Age for 18 months, and then dry hop.
Go see someone do it end-to-end before doing it yourself, though. A lot of what you do is visual, so you need to know what "looks right."
While that's undoubtedly the best way to do it, that's not the way I did it. I'd never seen anyone do AG before I started. I just read a lot of books and the usenet group rec.crafts.brewing and jumped in. Once I was done, it was kind if like "wow, is that all?". The point being that if you can't brew with someone else to learn, don't let it stop you.
I suppose this is just a case of different strokes for different folks.
It's sad when the word "pint" is taken to mean some random amount of beer. ...
When I can make 5 gallons of my own beer for what I'd spend on two pints in most places, the times when I actually pay for it, it better be done right.
I've done it a few times, both with leftovers like you've got, or with a new keg like Drew mentioned. No problems at all.
I would have stopped by, but it's nearly 3000 miles
I agree Mike, I found the "adventurous taste buds" comment a little silly. I didn't care for it at all and would not buy it again. And, FTR, haveing to drink 4 probably felt like drinking 6.
I haven't had the Gubna, but it sounds like I don't need to get more than one
