    I found a bottle of the McKenna 10 yesterday and I now see what all the fuss is about, what a great all a round bourbon. Brad

    Key is to find one on the cheap!
    Lowest around here I found was $75.
    Rip off artists up the street want $100.:rolleyes:
    I grabbed 2 of the $75 bottles.
    I could get them cheaper online but y'know, we're supposed to be supporting local in these strange times.

    It's about $45 in Tampa Bay area, but some stores are selling it for $100... ridiculous.

    Working in a new small town today so of course gotta hit up the local off sale. And there was a lonely bottle of this collecting dust so I saved it from getting more dust on it.

    Tasty indeed!

    Great pour and beautiful blades ! Cheers !
    Tonight's spread for my little get together with my Bourbon buddies... :D
    There is a actual knife behind the bottles, my new tanto from EGO Knives.

    I must have gotten a bad bottle of the McKenna, because it tasted horrible to me and a few of my friends. I had bought it a few months before it had won first place, so it was relatively cheap. But ugh so bad.

    Still $38 here

    I think I might have two bottles in the back of the cabinet from this year's lot..... Hope I don't regret waiting to open them.

    Starlight Distillery out of Indiana, Carl T.Huber's Single Barrel
    finished in Port Barrels, 4 years old, Eskimo Bros. selection...
    Amazing pour, one of the best I came across this Holiday Season, without spending few hundred bucks or
    leaving arm or leg in the store. Please, try it, it worth every penny !

    Well we got two on the chopping block tonight....worked all weekend thought the liquor cabinet deserved a couple more options...

    Initial pour on the Woodford...not so good...not much flavor, tastes of alcohol only...have to give it another pour tomorrow night maybe...

    But the Elijah Craig, tasty indeed! Almost reminds me of some Old Saddle or Old Hickory, good taste with a medium bite and long finish.

    Don't drink and handle knives :) You are more likely to get badly cut when drunk.

    Wednesday night was epic, that Toasted Barrel was impressive but the Barrel Proof did worm us up in the "cold" Florida night... :D

    Knob Creek is one of my all time favorites... You don't have to drop $300 a bottle to get a good Kentucky Bourbon.
    I love readily available good brands, Old Forester, 1792, Knob Creek, Four Roses and Wild Turkey are just a few to name...
    Cheers !
