    I got to sample the barrel strength at the overland expo a couple weeks ago. It was much better than the standard orange label offering. I'm not a fan at all of that drink, but I left with a changed mind about the barrel strength.

    I think I paid $44, so at that price, I'm honestly happy with it.

    I am definitely not a good reviewer, however it has the Rye spice, and oak on the nose. At 100 proof I feel it's just the right amount of bite.

    So far I like it.

    I was curious so I poured a second glass of Booker's. Was going to do a Baker's comparison, but it wasn't opened yet.

    To my untrained palette, I want to say that they have a very similar profile, however if they were electric guitars, the Knob Creek would be at a 6 or 7, and Booker's at a Spinal Tap 11. Longer finish, more bite, more flavors, etc.

    As per my usual, I sample from a Glencairn, but then have a pour in a tumbler with a large cube of Fiji water ice. As the ice melts, I get much more honey flavor.

    Not sure how many of you guys (and gals - @Cuffs) have tried the Legent, but I'm a few drams in and it's decent. Can't quite put my finger on it, but there's something different about it. I like it, but not sure I'm going to buy another bottle.

    I did just crack open my Macallan Edition no. 4. I'll give that a try in a few days.

    Whiskey sour courtesy of @bvbull200

    3 parts Monkey Shoulder
    1 part Simple Syrup
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    1 egg white

    Mixed whiskey and egg white in iced shaker
    Poured over ice. Added lemon juice and simple syrup. Stir.

    Pretty damn good and the egg is awesome. Gives a great viscosity

    I'm partial to Irish Whiskey. Maybe because the majority of my DNA is Irish, or that I've been there a couple times. My favorite is Middleton Very Rare, followed by 12 year old Redbreast.

    I've had many a drink of Blanton's and always enjoyed it, I finally snagged a bottle (after a lot of searching) and I have to say this particular batch is disappointing. Muted flavor and finishes very quickly. The Eagle Rare behind it is far more favorable. And @MarkMN Middleton is so good! 20190601_205808.jpg 20190601_205840.jpg
