      I see, I see, I get the picture ... snarky questions before I add captions! :P

      That's the name of the drink! Rye whiskey is most definitely not a thorn in my side. :)

      ha! No, I just hadn't seen Knob Creek rye before. How does it compare with the other Beam ryes? Martin Doudoroff wonders if it's basically bonded Old Overholt.

      I think it's terrific. I read somewhere that it's the same mashbill as Old Overholt, but aged for a few years longer and bottled at higher proof. I don't generally sip Overholt on its own, but I'd sip this one.
