I wonder if she comes with the obligatory Beam funk?
This was a new descriptive phrase for me, so... :D

"Beam products are best known for what many call the “Beam Funk.” This nuttiness/mustiness is prevalent to some degree from the lower end, lower proof bottlings up to the higher end, higher proof bottlings. At the lower end of the spectrum, the “funk” takes on a bit more wet cardboard flavor (3-4), while at the higher end it takes on a bit more of a peanut flavor (4-5)."

Be honest... how many of y'all can actually relate to a "wet cardboard flavor" ...

Most of my experience with whiskey was in my youth when quantity was more important than quality. Recently I decided to sample some "affordable: bourbons and discovered I like it. Then I realized I had never tasted rye so I picked up a few small bottles to sample and like the spicy.

My Grandad was a whiskey maker from way back in AR. In fact, his Dad kicked him out of the house at 11yrs old for being a spotter for men that made it and he refused to stop because the paid him well. He used to take a stick of burned oak and stick it in the jugs to give it a little tint sometimes.
When me and my brother were teenagers we used to sneak drinks of his moon shine so he started putting a pencil mark on the bottles at the liquid level. We discovered how he knew it so then we would fill the jug back up to the pencil mark with water when we were finished.

One day he went into the kitchen and poured himself a glass and then sat down in the living room and took a sip. He said, "You know I must have did something wrong with that last batch. The longer it sits on that shelf the weaker it gets", while he was staring directly at me with those rattlesnake eyes of his.

I knew the water and pencil mark jig was up. Those old guys just had a way with words.

I may know someone that has a friend's uncle that makes shine.
There is some 12 year old somewhere that is so smooth you think your having fine liquor. Put a small puddle on the table, light it and there is no flame signature, only heat. Pure alcohol at 190 proof. When I drop by there, I get to take a nip or two, or three.
Amazing shine.

Revel Stokes is the pecan whisky we were talking about early in this thread. It just came to mind. Excellent flavor.

Where they bust the sod in South Tulsa County.
Since this thread has turned into spirit's pricing, generally spirits are cheaper in OK than TX while wine is just the opposite.
For variety, especially bourbons, you'll have to go to MO and TX to find the better KY stuff like Willets and Rowans Creek. Specs, Total Wine and Brown Derby Int'l are excellent resources.
