Kentucky Rest Stop

Been a while since I've been to Kentucky. Only thing better than the Bourbon down there is the people. Not sure what exactly has changed, but came back to Ohio with such a great impression of Kentucky. That's not just the cake talking, either.

Pictured is 9 Year, Single Barrel Reserve. My understanding, from the nice lady at the visitors center, is that the difference from normal 9 year Knob Creek bottle is the 60%, 120 Proof (normal is 45%).

Now... 120 Bourbon. That's the cake talkin' y'all.

Bold, for sure. Borderline single malt Scotch flavor. Not a lot of kick on the buds but sharp, similar to a non-islay single malt but not as smokey. Recommended to hardcore without ice.
