Indeed! Jim, Basil, Booker and I spent many a fond evenings at Knob Creek.

Was a fan for a long time. Since they were purchased by a Japanese company, I find myself much more reserved with my friend Woodford.

Last time I was in Japan, you could buy fifths of Jim for about ten dollars American.

Not a fan. I suppose one has to acquire a taste. I haven't.

In the David Essex 1974 song "Rock On", he says "Jimmy Dean (James Dean)" & I also think he says "Jimmy Beam.........ROCK ON"!!!

Bourbon and cigars go together like peanut butter and chocolate. :blink

By the way, I dislike the Michael Damian 1989 remake of "Rock On" (from 1989 movie "Dream A Little Dream" with Corey Feldman) & went to # 1 & Donny Osmond's comeback song "Soldier Of Love" was # 2 that week in 1989.

I'd recommend inviting a 12-year old Canadian to your next pairing...

Don't let the price (usually under $25 US), or word "blended" on the label, turn you away.

Neat - or purified rocks - only.

Was going to get a bottle of Crown Royal next week as I only have a finger or two left. Think I'll give this a go instead. Thanks for the recommendation.
