Now I'm still a newbie at this, but I managed to get a liter of Knob Creek at Bottle Buys a few weeks ago for $29 (a steal in these parts). I've shied away from Beam products due to bad experiences with white label in college. Knob Creek tastes alright to me, but it seems that others have done it better. But for some reason, in an old fashioned, this stuff really comes alive, blowing away the BT, WT101 and OGD 114 that I've tried mixing with in the past. I don't know how to explain it, but for some reason it mixes with the Angostura and the cherry in some way that makes the drink greater than the sum of its parts.
On a completely separate note, my wife let me pick up a bottle of 4R single barrell last night since I finished my small batch (which she almost likes the taste of) and she wants to collect a few different 4R bottles for decorations. problem is i'm suffering from the mother of all summer colds. Had to have one small pour. what came through my cold-dulled senses was a lot of citrus and cherry. gotta get well so i can have myself a pour i can truly appreciate.
