Once we move beyond the social scene, Ginny steps back in history to a world of bootleggers and bourbon as she unveils a historical theory that ties together no less that the survival of bourbon itself. From there Charlie starts with Big Brother, passes by making money on the internet and ends with the state of journalism today. Closing out these two sample a fine bourbon and a Wilbury is found. Grab a cocktail and join us! The Charlie Tonic Hour is underway once again.

Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
(From the official website knobcreek.com)
When Booker Noe fathered the small batch movement over two decades ago,he created Knob Creek to restore the standards of pre-prohibition bourbon. The result is an undeniably big, full flavor that strikes your senses with a maple sugar aroma, distinctive sweetness and a rich, woody, caramel flavor with a long, smooth finish.
Knob Creek is crafted in limited quantities, aged 9 years and placed in only the deepest charred American Oak barrels to fully draw out the natural sugars. Then we bottle it at an honest 100 proof to reflect the flavor, strength and patience that defined pre-prohibition whiskey.
Once you’ve grown into this full flavor, no other bourbon will do. That’s when your palate refuses to take a step back and you’re ready for what Booker Noe envisioned true bourbon to be.
Make a bolder classic cocktail. Sip it neat. Open it up with a drop of water or filtered ice cubes. Enjoy it in whatever damn way you please.
