A solid American bourbon. It is always consistent, always available, priced well and always great.
Any bar will always have the likes of Jack Daniels and Jim Beam. However, this would be my first choice when breaking away from the standard bar fare without breaking the bank.
Knob Creek can be consumed straight and is pleasant in a snifter due to its viscous texture and intense maple musky bouquet. However, I prefer it in a rocks glass with an ice cube or two, because it is intensely strong. This is the kind of whiskey that you want to swirl around in the glass while watching the legs creep down. It is POWERFUL, and is about as subtle as a death fart in a crowded elevator. It also melts ice more quickly than salt.
An inexperience whiskey drinker can appreciate it due to its sweetness, but I would certainly recommend a few ice cubes to dilute the high alcohol content.
It is perfect for a cold winter's evening, and goes very well in a flask for those times when you feel the hair on your chest thinning.
