Enjoying the Small Batches

As was mentioned earlier, The Shadow has a penchant for the finer things in life -- good cigars, good women, and good booze. This is why I succumbed to the darkness -- to be able to enjoy these items.

Yesterday evening, The Shadow was among a group of bourbon enthusiasts in a downtown San Francisco hotel enjoying the tastes from the Knob Creek distillery.



The Knob Creek Family of Bourbons

The tasting consisted of the four small batch bourbons from Knob Creek: Basil Hayden, Knob Creek, Bakers, and Bookers.





The feature of the evening was a short talk by Frederick Booker Noe, a descendant of legnedary distiller Jim Beam


A good time was had by all. As a final souvenir, I received an empty Booker bourbon bottle that was signed by Mr. Noe himself!

That Booker's was damn tasty. If I had some right now, I'd pour it over my cornflakes for a fine breakfast.
