Coolmaterial.com is filled with, well, cool material, and there’s nothing cooler than sounding like you know a lot about bourbon. As drinkers who think Knob Creek is the pinnacle of high-dollar booze, we’re definitely not qualified to judge the merits of their list of “15 bourbons we need to try at least once.” Yet. But being told we need to try bourbon is really good enough, and it’s always nice to have plans for the weekend.
