    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    I bought my first bottle of this stuff last night. Suffice to say that I, a budget-conscious bourbon drinker, regret the crime of not trying this earlier.

    I agree with all of the above comments (sweet, hot in a nice controlled way, simple but good, good bang-for-buck, etc.) but would also emphasize the mouth feel as a selling point. I am a huge whore for mouth feel, and I have never had anything so rich, heavy-bodied, and oily for $16 a fifth.

    FC is a little scary... 103 proof, super sweet AND spicy... and only $13 for 750ml.

    It's the kinda juice you could OD on.

    But seriously, one of my favs. I too am annoyed that I waited so long to try it.

    It was the package that put me off at first as it appeared to be just a high proof fraternity party special. Was pleased to discover appearances were deceiving.

    Same here --- the name and the logo scream 'rot-gut', and that kept me away for a long time... but that aside, I find more to like about this stuff then most anything in the $20-$30 range.

    What's funny is that it is the name and package that makes it such a great seller here in Columbia, SC....home of the Fighting Gamecocks.
