Knob Creek Rye

When I did my half-assed Basil Hayden's review last week, I was shocked, SHOCKED I tell you to find out that Knob Creek was one of the "Better Beams".  Its name doesn't start with a B, how is that possible?

So, I went to a wine tasting last night and came home with a bottle of Rye.  Why?  Because I'm cool.  The label tells me that it was patiently aged, because if you are impatient, those 9+ years just drag you down.  It has a very strong cherry-nutty-oaky flavor.  It's 100 proof and little bit of water helps to cool the burn.

Is it good?  Yes.
Is it $37 good?  Ummuhhmaybeishno.
Is it better than Russel's Rye?  Nope.
