Knob Creek Cask 120

ask Pippy what he poured for me and Trent on our 2017 visit. It was great and I don't like the stuff but I have no clue what it was or where to get it
so pass the rum instead

Peace in and Out

Went to a cigar bar yesterday and figured I'd re-try a few of the staples that I haven't had in a while, Knob Creek Basil Hayden and Makers Mark 46. I don't know if I've every actually had the 46 before but I really enjoyed it, the KC was nothing too special but the Basil Hayden happened to mix perfectly with an HU Connie 1 I was smoking, that pairing won the afternoon

How many of you are going to the cigar/whiskey fest in Ft Lauderdale in early April? Figured to give it a try instead of Big Smoke Vegas in November.

You should come to cigar and whiskey fest in Illinois, Hugh. It's happening in my basement on any date you show up.

Never had the MM46 either, Ben, might have to try a pour now.

Last night I cracked my newest bottle:

Heard nothing but good about New Riff, never seen it available around here but I'd love to hear your thoughts

I was a bit surprised about the 46 as well, I'm heavily leaning towards wheaters recently so I guess I should have expected I would like it. Not super complex by any means but I could easily drink a few drams of that every day

Thanks for the thoughts on the 46.

Really like the New Riff Bib bourbon, Ben. While I like the SiB Rye, it's not as spicy as I had hoped. I'm inclined to try the regular rye next. But all in all, great bourbons for the price.

Hmmm....I'm not very good at describing and picking out notes yet. Initial aroma is brown sugar/maple syrup with an undertone I can't quite make out. This is going to sound really strange, but it reminds me of the way my Great Aunt's house used to smell.
It's only 93 proof but packs a little more heat than the other bourbons I've had so far. Flavors......I don't know.....it just tastes like whiskey lol, but I like it. Told you I'm not good at this haha.

Sounds like a review I would write... tastes like whiskey but good whiskey

I'm weak and stopped by my shop on the way home yesterday to get their bottle of RC6, haven't cracked it yet but I'm sure I will soon. They did have a bottle of Old Forester 1910 that I was very tempted on, but managed to say no.

Got home and had a pour of 1792 Full Proof, opened that one the other night. When I tried it the first time I thought it was too hot and ethanoly to be able to drink neat (125 proof), yesterday it seemed to be a bit more mellow. Still on the hot side but the aroma seemed improved and small sips didn't ruin the pallet. Towards the end I did put a few drops of water in which helped take away the numb tongue feeling but didn't do too much for the flavor. Not my favorite, I don't know if it's because I usually drink lower proof stuff (around 100 seems to be my sweet spot currently) but it struck me as just alright. Maybe I'll have another pour tonight over an ice cube or two to see if that helps bring anything out

Thanks for the review, Ray, it's all good.

Ben, I have become a big fan of the quality high proof stuff. Hopefully it doesn't put a whole in my stomach.

Grabbed a Larceny store pick on Saturday, cracked it last night and it tasted like straight up pistachios and peanuts. I've heard about nutty profiles but not often from Heaven Hill, unique to say the least. It wasn't my favorite, but it wasn't to the level of being off putting. I'll give it another shot tonight or tomorrow to make sure nothing else was influencing what I was getting, after that it may take a seat on the shelf to break out as a change of pace pour
