Saturday night Knob Creek bourbon going strong. Some of the best advice I was ever given: stay away from bars on the weekends, you will find all that you’re looking for in a large bottle of whiskey and a small group of close friends. Cheers everyone
Van Winkle Special Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Lot “B”, 12-year
This remains just as amazing as it did the first time I tried it, which surprises me a little. I sort of expected that as my palate and knowledge of whiskies expanded that it might loose some of its magic. It hasn’t. There are other whiskies that I like better but I don’t like this one any less for it.
It has just the right balance of sweet and fruity and spicy and floral for me and continuously morphs in interesting ways if I decide to have it with ice.
When I toured and photographed the barrel house at New Riff, I noticed this section of barrels more so than the rest. Something special must be coming out of these barrels, the sunlight was choosing to shine on them. Can’t wait to have a taste!
