One of the other things I can't deal with....TONIC.....tooooo much like grapefruit. My ma will get an INSTANT migraine from the stuff. I drink brandy soda (usually E & J) if it's not on the rocks or neat and sometimes they hit the wrong button and give me tonic. BIG throat lock on that. Not many things I don't like, tonic would be one. Now soda with lime.....OH yeah :-D

I just killed my bottle of Grand Mariner, so I'm moving to some Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon - the Knob Creek was in a differnet room  :(

Booooooooooooo! I think Knob Creek is right at the top of small batch bourbons, at least for my tastes.

I don't disagree. Have you tried the Single Barrel? 120 Proof deliciousness.

I didn't even know they made a single barrel batch. The ABC stores around Birmingham are pretty limited in their offerings. I may have to make a trip to Atlanta to source out any of the really good stuff, or maybe the ABC can order it. I doubt it though, they really don't care about customer care since they know people will come buy from them anyways. LOL.

That sucks. I wouldn't make a special trip for it, but give it a run if you get to a place that sells it.

Hands down the BEST thing I've ever sipped. My brother got a couple bottles of this many years ago for about 150-200 a crack and we sat and drank a bottle one nite in snifters, warmed in hand, and not touched with even an ice cube and a couple cigars to go with it. Drank the whole thing.........OOOOoohhhhhhh, so wonderful. It really was THAT good!! He still has the other one, uncracked and intact. I keep bugging him that we should drink it before one of us croak off  :-D :-D

It costs 10X that today. I've had it one time as well, and I agree.

We sometimes go out there just to hang out and shop around for stuff. Next time we go we're gonna to try and find a good WFO restaurant to get some pizza. Someone told me about a place that was supposed to be the best in the city but I forget the name. I can look for the single barrel stuff during that trip for sure.

And holy cow Jon, that looks INSANE. Want.

To shamelessly drink a bottle of one of the best brandy/cognac's in the world was awesome to say the least, and even back then, almost 30 years ago it was about 1000 a bottle. More now for sure!!!At least I had the sense and taste to appreciate it and not just do shots :P

OK, so I mustered the energy to walk to the other room and retrieve a bottle of Knob Single Barrel. It was worth the effort. It's big, thick, hot - very hot - caramel, roasted vanillin oak, toffee, apple - perhaps a little cinnamon and even some tobacco. Very nice. Glad I got up.

Holy s*** I need that in my life. I love a bourbon that has caramel and toffee characteristics. Almost candy like. I guess that's why I love a good rusty nail from time to time, but only on special occasions and only when I'm at a bar. If I kept Drambuie around my house I'd never get anything done.
