Which bourbon for bourbon balls?

Recommended Posts

I always try a new cookie or confection recipe every holiday season...and, this year I've decided to make Kentucky Bourbon Balls. However, each recipe I found says to use a different bourbon...and, that the bourbon suggested is "the best." Smiles!


I know nothing about bourbon. I did find a few sites that review bourbons...and, a few of the top names are: Knob Creek, Pappy Van Winkle's, Maker's Mark, and Woodford. As I said...I know nothing about bourbon...but, when the taste described says it ends with a nice "leather"...I'm a bit skeptical to use it. Smiles! One site that says Knob Creek is the best is not as highly recommended on another site. Sigh...


The two that were most recommended for bourbon balls are Knob Creek and Maker's Mark. Can anyone help me decipher which (any bourbon...not just those two) to use for bourbon balls? Do you have another recommendation?


Thanks so much...hiccup!
