Shouldn't this thread be named "Weaze and the hard stuff"?

But really I'm clueless with Bourbon. E'splain Bourbon please.

E'splain Bourbon please.

You put it in your mouth. It tastes good and makes your tummy warm.

By law it must be aged at least two years in fresh charred barrels which are then sold to age some other type of whiskey (Scotch commonly).  Over 1/2 of the grain base has to be corn.

Bourbons tend to be younger and have a ton of vanilla, smoke (campfire not peat like Scotch) and spicy notes due to single use barrels and full body sweetness from the corn base.  Even good bourbon tends to be a little more "raw" than other types of whiskey in my opinion which is what makes it so good. I think a little bit of rye can balance out the sweetness with a nice dryness and spiciness but a little can go a long way if it's not what you are looking for.

i'll tell ya, untill I tries Elijah Craaig, all burbon tated the same to me. After drinking it though, I can get what you describe the flavors as. Especially the flavors.
  another one i've enjoyed a good bit lately is (flame suit on) Red Stag. I won't allow myself to even keep that in the house.
