    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    Picked up a bottle of Fighting Cock today to check it out. Will have to dial some up tomorrow for the game. Go Hawks!

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    I got my first bottle recently. I'm having one now.

    The nose gives you a good whack, but ...

    ...the flavor comes in, black pepper and cinnamon body slamming the ethanol nose to the mat; down one, ...two ...

    ...couple drops of water ...

    ...flavor forces reconstitute expotentially, regroup, and metamorphize...caramel, toffee, maple... overrun taste buds, setting up a defensive parameter from the gums to the tonsils, ...wire for reinforcements to secure positions...

    a cavalry charged mouthful... settles all remaining micro skirmishes.

    Good. Damn good bourbon.
    Peace, ... and Hippy Love.

    Haven't tried it yet, but I think Ill be getting a bottle to celebrate the Gamecocks finally winning the SEC East.
    That shirt looks good on you, but it would look even better stuffed into the neck of a vodka bottle and flung burning through our office's window.

    As I finish the bottle, I am sad to see it go. The flavors started coming together today as I polished it off.

    I agree... Love the nose. Mucho vanilla which has a dark chocolate tone, and nuts (roasted almonds?), yummy.

    I can see myself buying this again.

    I finally found this for sale in Maryland and picked up a couple of bottles to have during the SC games.

    its actually quite good. i get some vanilla/maple syrup type notes. ill definitely be crossing the Mason-Dixon every now and then to pick up some of this.

    I tried this when it first came out. My take was it's the Heaven Hill profile with more heat. Robust, traditional caramel/oak Bourbon with an undeniable image.

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    I find this to be a good all around value play for mixing and using in recipes.... eggnog, marinades, etc. A bit hot to my palate for a neat pour.
