Summer of little joy

Knobcreek1 According to a story in the Louisville Courier-Journal (and who is in a better place to know?), there may be a shortage of Knob Creek bourbon this year.

 Fans of Knob Creek bourbon may find their favorite whiskey in short supply this summer as the brand's bottle warehouses near Clermont, Ky., are empty and the next batch of aged whiskey won't be ready until November.

The culprit? A failure to anticipate the drink's popularity. Of course, it's somewhat understandable given that aged bourbons such as Knob Creek need to spend nine years in the cask. And nine years ago, who could have foreseen the situation we'd be in today, or the need for liquid refreshment to ease the pain.
