I had some Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve yesterday while tailgating before the Pat's game. I've never had a barrel-strength whiskey (or whisky, for that matter) that was such a smooth sipper. It still had a lot of sweetness left, and that ended up balancing out the heat and leaving a remarkably rich mouthfeel. This is a dangerous one.
Knob Creek is my "first love" when it comes to bourbon, and this is like seeing her at your 20-year reunion looking hotter than ever. Great stuff.
