    I would say the Impala SS.
    Like OGD 114 the Impala SS has some kick and is good enough to keep you level.

    The only draw back is that it doesn't keep well, it seems to spoil in the freezer as soon as the next day, so ya gotta eat it all up the day it's made. But that's not a problem.
    Half-n-Half?
    WTF was I thinking, that should be Whipping Cream, whip it up with the eggs.
    Is there a proof reader button to click on?

    Re: Bookers - pretty tasty

    Bookers was the favorite of a late friend of mine so I kept a bottle available for when he came by to visit. We shared Bookers for years and my impression never changed from the first sip, which is to say the Beam profile only more so. I once dubbed it Beam with a college education.

    My personal feeling is that it is too much for what it offers. I'd spend my money elsewhere but that's just me. I like the coffin it sits in
