    Queen Jennie is the s**t. I guit drinking 20 years ago, not because I had to, but 'coz it all tasted the same. Geneva Lake Brewing Company & Old Sugar Distillery reminded me what good beer & whiskey are supposed to taste like. If you are ever in Lake Geneva, you have to try the No Wake IPA, Cedar Point Amber, Narrows Kolsh & my favorite, Weekender Wheat. When in Madison you have got to get some Queen Jennie Whiskey, you won't be disappointed.

    At the risk of being labeled the Andrew Zimmern of Booze, I've seen and tasted odder whiskies and liquor than those, "Chassis Liquor" (nearest translation I can render from the Russian) which is the hydraulic fluid stolen from the landing gear system of a MIG fighter aircraft (aka "the flying restaurant "), whiskies with scorpions, geckos, and cobras to name a few.
    But yes I vastly prefer Balcones' or Charbays' whiskies to most of the other exotics I've had.

    I've tasted the three Balcones whiskeys and I was not impressed. The Baby Blue was truest to the corn with a modest buttered popcorn aroma, but it didn't have the mouth-feel and smoothness of my favorite white dog, Glen Thunder.
