Both have tried Blanton's a number of times but Caribou is new to Jordan's liquor cabinet.  They discuss the similarities and the differences.  Each of them talk about their favorite but could not say which is the best whiskey.Josh says thanks to all of you that have downloaded Acquired Tastings podcast.  There have been downloads on six of the Earth's seven continents! There has been over 10,000 downloads as well!  It is again time to Party!
