Round 2! Knob Creek 9y Single Barrel Reserve with Virginia

Knob Creek, purveyors of fine Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. This is their Single Barrel Reserve, aged nine years and bottle at 60%. It’s not often a distiller can pull off a high-powered whiskey without a lot of collateral damage in the flavour and face burning departments, but Knob Creek manages to do it and still

Corner Creek Kentucky Bourbon with Virginia, Dan, Goran & Steve

Corner Creek Kentucky Bourbon, the first bourbon bottler we’ve sampled. Same as with scotch, some companies distill, some buy and blend, and some buy and bottle. This is the latter. To be more correct, we’ve had bourbon bottled by people other than the distiller – that rash of 90% plus ryes from bourbon makers we

Knob Creek Straight Rye with Dan & Ryan

Return to Knob Country! Wow, that sounds like the name of a porn. Back to back Knobs here at-nope. Um… We’re busy Knobbing away-no. In the middle of a good Knobfest-not okay. SOMETHING SOMETHING THE 3RD KNOB CREEK. It’s awry. Well no, the start of this post is awry, this Knob Creek is a rye.

Knob Creek 9y Single Barrel Reserve with Dan

Back to the creek best known for its knobs. That is a terrible intro, so let me try again. Knob Creek! Single Barrel! 120 Proofs! All the proofs! We’ve had a Knob Creek before, about a year and a half ago, and the last review is a little, or completely, light on the information. I’m

Forty Creek Double Barrel Reserve with Dan

The fourth Forty Creek. So that’s, like… A Hundred And Sixty Creek, I guess. And we’re not even half way through the brand. This time out we’ve got the Double Barrel Reserve, specifically lot 240 distillery no. 54sl46. It’s a blend of individually aged corn, rye and barley whiskies mixed into and aged in second-use

Forty Creek Copper Pot Reserve with Dan, Goran & Matt

Forty Creek Copper Pot Reserve, the second rung of the Forty Creek product line. This is our third foray into this brand, previous trying the Premium Barrel Select, and pitting their Cream Liquor against Bailey’s on Christmas Day. As we mentioned in the PBS review, we have some history with Forty Creek, mostly for parties

Christmas Day BattleScotch! Forty Creek Cream Liquor v Baileys Original Irish Cream with Sarah, Goran, Dan, Ryan & Robin

Christmas Day Battlescotch! As if today weren’t awesome/stressful enough, let’s throw in some more conflict and alcohol! At least this way you’ll know which of these to use to smooth out your coffee and your relatives. We’ve had a Forty Creek before, but I didn’t do much digging for the last article. Forty Creek distillery

BattleScotch! Baker’s 7y v Knob Creek 9y with Dan & Ryan

Recently, we BattleScotch!ed some shitty bourbons. That was shitty. This was not shitty. This was the GOOD bourbon BattleScotch! Baker’s 7y v Knob Creek 9y, both part of the Small Batch line from Beam. So really, in this contest, the only winner is the shareholders of Beam Inc. Hey, when we can buy local whisky,

Forty Creek Premium Barrel Select with Dan & Ryan

Oh man. Forty Creek – a blast from the past.  You might be asking, dude, why? Why? WHY? It has at least three strikes: “Canadian Whisky” (which as we know is a moniker with some serious credibility issues), twist-off top, “premium” in the name. This was Dan’s go-to whisky for forever before we started this
