    Knob Creek Shortage

    I don't know whether to believe this, or if it's some sort of marketing ploy, but I received this email today . . . apparently WT isn't the only one running out of properly aged whiskey . . . KC represents the oldest of Beam's product, right?

    Anyway, I have a bottle from Christmas that I still haven't opened yet, so I doubt the shortage will affect me, but I do find it interesting.

    I know about KC what is WT running out of? I haven't heard any thing about it?
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Just generally their bourbon is not aged enough in my (and others') opinion -- they dropped the age statement on the WT101 in the 90's and the WTKS seems to be getting younger & younger (to the point that they didn't even release any yet this year), the Rare Breed is also quite different than it was in the 90's. I didn't mean to suggest there would be any shortage of specific product, just lack of older whiskey - - but bnow that I mentioned it, I guess The Kentucky Spirit, b/c I don't think they've released any since mid-last year.

    I still think the bird is tops, it just isn't what it very recently was -- the expansion should help that immensely.
