Casting about on the liquor aisle, I wanted something different, unlike my usual bottom-shelf gut-rot bourbon. I'm a bourbon drinker and consider even the gut-rot to be better than most Canadian whiskeys. I'm not a snob, but I know what I like. I was looking for Buffalo Trace, which I've heard good things about, but the store didn't carry it. Then, I spotted this.
Why the hell not? Knob Creek makes good bourbon, so why not rye? I bought the bottle and tok it home, and I'll get into it this weekend. Maybe when the boys are over on Sunday.
I divide my whiskey's into two major groups. Those that get mixed with cola, and those that don't. Knob Creek doesn't get mixed with anything. It's just fine neat, and over ice. I looked for reviews on this rye whiskey, and Men's Journal gives it high marks. We'll see.
