I'm not a fan of the shelf bottle I have, but I've heard some of those single barrels of the full proof can be delicious. Glad you got a good one

Very nice Steve!

Anyone have any experience with the Knob Creek Single Barrel bourbon (120 proof) store picks? There are a couple different ones at Binny's about 11 years old. I've heard great things about the 14 years old sps, but not much about the 11 years.

Just picked one in KC here 2 weeks ago and tried it (1st time). I had a "couple" Oktoberfest beers before I tried it and I it was the most mint I had tasted out of a bourbon. Tried it again the next night and it was there but fainter but still there so maybe it was just me.

A couple weeks removed I will give it a go here again this week.

I know I am no help whatsoever.

Thanks Jay.

I was wrong, the Binny's ones were only 9 years. Had a gift card so grabbed one for free to give it a whirl. Picked the one with the fewest bottles left. Also grabbed the OFSBBS store pick for trade bait.

Nice snag on the OF. Local store got the first barrel in CO a few weeks back, I was watching the announcement and figured "that's a little pricey for a young bottle, I'll let everybody else have their fun" then immediately saw how much other people cared about it and wished I had grabbed one or two to pass along. FWIW I did have a pour from that bottle last weekend and it was pretty good, very easy to drink for a high proof, but it still seems expensive

The OFs are going for more than double what I paid on FB secondary groups, so I figured maybe I can get one of the '15 Booker's I need out of it. If not, I'll drink it. Had a pour last night and was pretty happy, that Beam peanut funk was front and center.

Nice picks Tom! I have really enjoyed some of the OFs lately.

The OF i have had have been great. have a couple of the BP picks that are real solid. Everyone around me loves the 14-15yr KC SP. My guess is if you like bookers you will enjoy the KC SP also. I have also hear that the 14-15 year KC picks are going away/ pretty much done now.

I snagged a 15+ year old store pick for what I thought was a very reasonable price on a FB secondary group yesterday Andrew, so at least I'll get one before they go the way of the dinosaur.

Got a purty little trifecta of samples from Mr. Stearns today as well, a very nice surprise indeed.
