    Booker's with a little spring water - followed closely by Baker's straight up.

    Knob Creek for now, still on my first bottle of Booker's.

    By far Knob Creek is the Beam product I reach for the most. Iím also a fan of the basic Jim Beam Black. Bakerís, however, is one of the bourbons I just have once in awhile when I want something a little more special.

    Hmm, Fav Beam product? I really like Bakers. But for my money I usually go with OGD 114.

    Knob Creek was it until I had OGD 114, a flavor that hits me just right.

    Wink OGD 114

    I think OGD 114 has the "house record" at my place for fastest emptying. Something on the order of about four weeks.

    Booker's straight up. Only enjoy this once or twice a month but those times, it really hits the spot.

    Really? There's a poor, dead Kentucky Spirit bottle here every week. Added to any change of pace things....

    Thumbs up Best of Beam

    Though my recent Beam experience is rather limited, I'll have to join some others here and cast my vote for Knob Creek with Baker's running a close second.

    Black, for its quality/price combo. I always have a bottle in the house (not always open, but never on the 'reserved' list either). And, I think, of all the Beam products I'd like to find a deal on -- either price or availability -- I think I'd snap up any of the old 7yo/90 proof black labels in an instant.
