Corner Creek Bourbon has always been a favorite of mine. It is one of those bourbons that doesn’t seem to try to make you like it, and yet you can’t help yourself but enjoy it. After all, when the current trend in bourbon is to get fancier and fancier bottles, the guys at Corner Creek decided to just use a standard wine bottle for their bourbon. In fact, I’ve had multiple guest at my place confuse it for an oddly colored wine at first glance. To me, that seems lack a lack of pretension which I can appreciate.
The same character flows through to the bourbon itself. Corner Creek Reserve Bourbon Whiskey is aged a nice eight years and bottled at 88 proof. That leads to a relatively gentle drinking experience light on burn or much alcohol taste. In fact, you get smokey sweet bourbon with a very full finish that will keep you coming back for more.
The last thing I love about this bourbon is the price. I get most bottles for around $20, which is an incredibly reasonable price for what you get. This stuff wins all sorts of awards. Real critics are giving it fantastic reviews. And you can still get it cheap. I recommend buying some, imbibing, and enjoying.
