Can those of you southeners on the group who make a mean mint julep tell me which bourbons you favour and why? Nick's general recommendation a couple of years back was a sweet, rich bourbon without too much rye as the spiciness interferes, rather than complements, the julep. His suggestion was Bookers or W.L. Weller Antique 107. I myself have tried it using Maker's Mark and really disliked it... but I really dislike Maker's Mark.
Any other suggestions, I'd be interested in hearing them.
