My son and I just tried Booker's last night for the first time. Gotta say it's become our instant favorite! It's everything we like in a bourbon, and just the way we like it (except for the price!).
We've seen much discussion on these forums about the similarities between Knob Creek and Booker's, same mash bill, etc. and the family resemblance is obvious even with our limited experience.
Other than differences in bottling proof, what are the distinctions between the two during their maturation processes? And why does the younger Booker's cost so much more than the older KC?
I did several searches before posting our questions, but if this has already been discussed elsewhere, just point me at the right thread. Thanks!
