Oh, you betcha! It's a small distillery, and only within the last 5 or 6 years can you even get it outside the immediate area. It's made in small batches and aged properly.

Good stuff! Congratulations!

Actually, Franklin County Kentucky is the home. If you have never had their George T. Stagg brand you cannot appreciate the real meaning of "Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey." Kentucky Bourbon MUST be MADE in Kentucky and aged there at least for a year and then aged at least another year (can be elsewhere if your warehouse ain't big enough)!

Tennessee Whiskey and Kentucky Straight Bourbon are two different animals and though I like Jack Daniels as a good booze and a great mixing whiskey, for Manhattans and striaght drinking..............Man, Bourbon is heaven. Those central Kentucky distillers with the great limestone filtered water make the very best!

Thank you, Spaw. I always make a point when ordering bourbon out to not bring me Jack Daniels. It is surprising how many consider it bourbon.

Try some Basil Hayden - another small batch bourbon.

Bourbon used to be the "dirty" liquor made from the dregs of the corn....now these small batch distillers have raised it to its rightful (IMHO) place.

Some years back the Wild Turkey aging warehouses burned. All that good whiskEy in the creek, headin' for the Ohio. What a shame -- but the fishing was first-rate! Them fish'd come right up to ya and take a swing, and when they'd fall down you could pick 'em up and they was pre-marinated!

(Actually, WT is blended Bourbon. Bookers, Knob Creek, BF and others are, I believe, the equivalent of single malt. Both have their place!)

Truly, WT is NOT what it used to be. That was one helluva' fire too. Can you imagine the flames fed by all that booze? The pictures were unbelievable.

Seriously Russ, try to find some Stagg, Knob Creek, Buffalo Trace.......Worth the money and time to find. BTW, Makers Mark is still a kind of "benchmark" of Bourbons and that's what makes the others we've been talking about so great. MM IS Bourbon and if ya' got one better, ya' got it all!!!

Hell Bob, if you're going out, get a bottle of Buffalo Trace or Stagg just for comparison sake. If you weren't so far away, I'd join you for the comparison.

Say.....Now there's an idea. Everybody on this thread goes out and buys a couple of bottles of good Bourbon and then we all sit around one night and compare our brands as we sample them. After about an hour or so, it ought to make for real entertainin' reading!

Thanks for the advice from the knowledgable imbibers.

Actually I am really a single malt scotch man.

Don't drink a lot of bourbon these days.

Of the people I play music with, the geezers like me drink scotch, the kids drink bourbon. They have shared with me some really tasty ones, but I don't remember the names.

Cannot remember when I developed a taste for WT.

When I was at U of K several thousand years ago, MM was quite popular. Preparation for a date required the purchase of a half pint of MM for the lad, a half pint of Southern Comfort (YUK!) for the lass.

I personally prefer good whisky and good whiskEy.

I once shared a liter or so of that 100-proof Kool-Aid called "Southern Comfort" with friend as we walked along a road in a state park in Missouri. Everyone in the group was drinking it, as we had 3 bottles and it was all we could get. My friend and I blacked out, eventually; another locked himself away in a car because he was feared the rest of us, and another wandered away saying he was hunting for a certain part of the female anatomy.

None of us were in very good shape the next day. I remember someone dropped a wet sponge onto a towel and we all nearly died from the noise.

Gad, the things you do in your youth...and survive, somehow.

I stopped in a liquor store this morning and checked out the bourbon section. Not much on display, but there was a bottle of Knob Creek, so I bought it. I've got some next to me right now, in a souvenir cup I picked up at Renfro Valley, KY, and I have to thank all of you who mentioned it. I'm not a whiskey drinker, but this stuff is good.

Evan Williams was the first distillery in Kentucky (1783), and for the price, it's the best I've found. When I moved back to Texas from Singapore in 1985, I discovered the price of even cheap scotch was ridiculous. I tried every brand of straight bourbon I could find and finally settled on Evan Williams. It sells for $21 a half-gallon at my favorite liquor store.

My Old Grandad, raised on the border of Texas and Oklahoma, was quite a "rough n ready" man-as my Daddy said. Grandad drank Kentucky Bourgon, and had several very interesting decanters when I was a kid. The many regular empties were usually placed out the breezeway, where we grandkids went out & sniffed the bottles, giggling as though we were doing something naughty. My favorite decanter was one which was a golden oil derrick with the empty bottle inside, & the top was a gold cup-upside down. It had a music box built into the bottom which played "How Dry I Am."

Whiskey bargain hunters in the UK should check out Lidl's Dundalgan Irish Whiskey (when they have it in). Discerning drinkers here have likened it to Paddy, but quite a bit cheaper.

By the way, Southern Comfort is not whiskey. It's a whiskey-based liqueur, in the same way that Drambuie is.

Knob Creek is a very nice small batch Bourbon, with a little sharper finish, smokier taste and deeper burn than smooth finish bourbons like Maker's. I picked up some Elijah Craig for the Getaway because I couldn't find any Knob Creek, and I liked it a lot. Velvety on the tongue, very mellow finish, a step up for Maker's drinkers.
Some others to try for the adventurous...
Sazerac
Woodford
Kentucky Vintage
Pure Kentucky
Pappy Van Winkle
and for those who want a nearly overpowering Disneyland of bourbon flavor, Eagle Rare

Oh, yeah. My pal Blake says you can't beat Four Roses. What the hell does he know?

That gumshoe!! If he had more than one case a year he'd be drinking single malt scotch and calling ti Easy Street. Seriously though, I found your bourbon most accommodating to the soul, encouraging to merriment and relieving of stress, and I look forward to many future opportunities to enjoy it. It was the only reason I got any sleep at all! LOL
