Might wish to go grab your bottle know. The company had some issues and no new Knob Creek will be out for an undetermined length of time. :(
Yeah I read that on the Knob Creek site some time back......Is there no U.S. enterprise out there that's being managed by anything other than drunken monkies?

    They do make whiskey there...    So a few drunken monkeys are likely to be there.    ;D

    Knob Creek's made at Heaven Hill, and aged 9 years. They had a big fire there ... five, six years ago? Seems like that might have something to do with it.

    Sure we can put them all in there.  Flavor may be different between corn and rye whiskeys, and you may have straight bourbons, whiskeys, and blended whiskeys, but they are all still a whiskey.  Flavors may vary, but when we discuss them, putting them in line quality-wise irrespective of the different styles/flavors isn't a sin.  Life's too short to get knotted knickers over lumping different styles of whisky together, no different than muscle cars-  Be it a Camaro, Mustang, Charger, or Firebird, it's still a muscle car.

    Although, on a personal note I prefer a good bourbon over anything.  Rye whiskeys just don't do it as a general rule.  I do however keep a couple bottles of top shelf stuff around and have a gold rimmed nosing glass........ ;)

    I liked JD because I could fill an canteen with it for about 10 bucks.  I also like Rum.  Captain Morgan's is popular, but I'm not really a fan of it.

    But how do you lump a scotch in with a bourbon? If you use a method of just lumping stuff together might as well throw all liquors in there. I think Scotch and bourbon are as different taste wise as a reposado tequila and good vodka. Sure they are both liquors. They are not the same though. It would be a shame to not experience all the different types. 

    My personal drink is tequila. A good blanco or reposado depending on my mood. You can sip it straight over just a few ice cubes.  :cheers

    Bloody hell where you buying a bottle of jack for 10 bucks? Its sodding $40 for a 700ml bottle here, or $80 for a bottle of single barrel (my favriote mixing whiskey) and single barrel is rarer than rocking horse crap!

    Is it just me or does whiskey seem to be a bit of a let down when you start drinking the more expensive stuff? I dont know maybe im not a whiskey person, to me they are better when combined with other drinks like Irn-bru or coke, I know I would rather sit down with a beer than a whiskey or even any spirt.

    To me the expensive stuff is worth it.  One single ice cube and one ounce of Crown Royal XR  in my nosing glass takes about 15 minutes to enjoy.  Very rich and complex flavors there, much more so than most good wines even.  But 1 liter of the stuff is 200 bleeding dollars, so it best be VERY good.(which it is.)

      Nope.  Just like I have no problem discussing red and white wines in the same conversations.  It's still wine, even if they have completely different flavors, textures, and finishes.

    No, you do not understand.  I meant this from a cultural/national pride thing.  I'm sure you are aware that the Blue Agave plant only grows in some regions in Mexico.  Having said that, I'm pretty sure you can find Chinese counterfeit Tequila.

    You can find chinese counterfeit anything if you look hard enough.

    Actually, I didn't know that the blue agave plant only grows in mexico, I never heard that bit of trivia and I never cared to study anything about alcohol. I have had a soda that had agave in it, though. watermelon flavored.

    Yes, so that is why tequila is uniquely Mexican.  Good to have a little proud heritage though, right?

    You tried 40 Creek Whiskey? It is a Canadian style whiskey that has been at few judgings and was up above the special reserve Crown and just below XR. I am not a big Canadian whiskey fan, but it is a good example of that style.

    So you've learned what tequila does to you, but not all Alcohol will have the same effect. You gotta get back on that horse.

    I liked JD because I could fill an canteen with it for about 10 bucks.  I also like Rum.  Captain Morgan's is popular, but I'm not really a fan of it. 

    I used to be a big fan of the Captain and Coke, but now I go for either Bacardi Select and Coke, or Cruzan Dark Estate Rum and Coke. Squeeze a lime wedge in there and drop the wedge in ...[lips smacking] mmmmmmm.... Dark rums for dark mixers. Light/clear rums for lighter clearer drinks, like Mojitos, Daiquiris...

    Mmmm, Bacardi Select.
    I've been drinking Kool-aid almost exclusively for about a week though.

    Anyway, I picked up a bottle of Black Opal shiraz the other day.  Gonna hit that like it's a piñata.
