Deciding between grade 1 and 2 of the 2007 BMD was very difficult. Ultimately when it came down to flavor and effect grade 1 was superior. Along with this cake being easier to break apart and a thicker liquor, it has a bit more of a refined tasting experience. It has a little more noticeable boost of chi ("qi"). So, please give them both a shot and decide for yourself if grade has a direct connection to the amount of enjoyment in your cup!
