And pay no attention to that even older bottle of Woodruff right next to it. Or the Eagle Rare.

Personally, I like most all of them. Just finished off a bottle of Bulleit this past weekend. Next up, I think, is a bottle of Evan Williams.
Bulleit is WONDERFUL! I already drank your bottle of Woodruff and loved it, thankyou. Just keep away from my Basil Hayden. Don't even look at it.

I'll drop some water in as well...but even less than a tablespoon. I'm more in the 2-3 drops camp.

I'll try that, thanks.

I like Grey Goose straigt too, but I need to shake the crud out of it with ice first. Actually goes real good with a nice stogie. The two flavors were meant for one another.

I really think part of the appeal is the "old west" style bottle with the raised glass lettering. I'm using a picture of it as my avatar at The Pit right now.

I'm afraid I'll have to sue for custody.

I'm ready for my cocktail now, Mr. DeMille.

If you want a bourbon with a completely different (but in my opinion Really good) edge on it. Try Elijah Craig 18yo.

It's one that you will either like or you won't. Do NOT add water to it, it will go bitter...

So 1 Tbls (.5 oz) of water in 1.5 oz of Knob Creek (100 proof bourbon)
At that dilutioin rate you will have a 75 Proof Bourbon Cocktail of sorts....Definitely weak, smooth, and not much flavor....

I almost never type teaspoon out as a measurement.. Yes a tablespoon pretty much kills it..
