I am giving a bottle of bacon infused bourbon as a Christmas gift to someone who loves both ingredients. I tested the method of fat washing on a bottle of Makers just to make sure I was executing the "wash" correctly. Thumbs up on execution, but I'd like to step up the bourbon a bit.
The recipeint of the gift is a huge Woodford fan, but I was hoping that someone out there might have a reccomendation for a type of Bourbon that is particularly good when combined with the flavor of delicious bacon. I enjoy many different bourbons myself but find it hard to identify the subtle differences between them that would make one better for combining with pork fat.
