    Corner Creek

    I'm always in the market for a new bourbon, and wondering about Corner Creek. For those who have had it, what do you think? Is there another bourbon out there you could compare it to?

    Thanks.

    I bought a bottle last year. I didnt like it at all. I felt it was a waist of $25. There is much better bourbon for that price.

    When I could get it for right around $20, I thought it pretty good for the price. I don't think it is any longer being made, though, so if you try it and like it, don't become too attached. It may be hard to replace.

    Re: Corner Creek

    I've always liked corner creek, and since locally it is priced the same as WT101 and jb black, I always keep a bottle or two around. It is different, and I have a hard time quantifying the difference, but I do like it.

    Try it, what's the worst that can happen?

    When I was visiting KBD in September they were bottling Corner Creek.

    I'll second that. I bought a bottle about 2 yrs ago and my recollection is that I found it rather thin, harsh, and non-complex. Tom V

    Re: Corner Creek

    My wife just got me 2 bottles for my birthday. Binny's have it for $17.99, it was just the $90 Fedex charge that was a real bitch!!
    I don't mind this bourbon. I had no expectations, as I had never read about it here before, but I have had worse bourbon. I also found it rather non-complex, although it made a nice mixer.

    That's too bad. I need to get out and try to find a couple bottles. Was I asleep when this news was discovered?

    I have a couple of bottles my wife got me as gifts and that makes them kind of special to me, and as you say, you can always find a good use for any bourbon!

    That Fedex charge is a real killer Scott! If I were in your shoes, I would order only fairly high end stuff (you're gonna pay a lot regardless) and as much as I could afford at a time, as I expect it costs proportionately less after you soak up the initial charge.

    Then again, if I were in your shoes, I'd go out and visit some great Australian wineries, and see some Kangeroos, take a bit of a drive through the outback, and try to squeeze in some reef fishing!! Tom V

    Re: Corner Creek

    I thought it was good... certainly one of the better KGD bottlings.
