Are water towers still a thing where you live?
Absolutely..........lots of larger cities have gone the way of the pump but rural America loves it's water towers and stand pipes.I'm a water operator for two small communities and I assure you,unless forced to you will always see water towers here.

Anyone know of a bourbon with caramel notes to it?
It just dawned on me today that our trip to New Mexico took us right down Interstate 44 thru Bourbon,Missouri! My Aunt and Uncle live there. I dont know how many towns around our country still have the good ole 4 leg water towers with the towns name on them but Bourbon Missouri still has one!
I had to give this some serious thought.Caramel is one of my favorite finds in a new bourbon.Old Forester Signature 100 proof has it in spades.Also very prominent in Old Forester Statesman.........however this is twice the price of Signature.Another is Weller 12,really hard to find right now,but I also get it in Weller Special Reserve and Antique 107.The old Elijah Craig 12 yo had tons of caramel.......the new release no age statement EC I am unsure of.Caramel is also present in Four Roses small batch.........but it's complexity makes it easy to find on the nose and a little more subdued on the palate.Still a favorite of mine.Hopefully you'll run across some of these.Good luck

A little greasy spot in the road called Knox City Texas.......I also take care of the small town 3 miles south,Obrien Texas.

Forgot to mention I am also their wastewater operator.........I have to wash my hands between gigs.

I showed mine......now it's your turn.Where are you?

I grew up in Munday Texas,1200-1500 people,spent 16 years all over the world military and contracting,live in a town of 1100 12 miles west of where I grew up.I still don't know why I came back,maybe the love of small town America

Oh yea this is a whisky thread.......I'm enjoying a gin~n~tonic with a La Palina Classic cigar.LOL

Since I'm drinking Elijah Craig at the moment (the no age statement stuff) I'll say it has a sweetness but my tastebuds don't pick it up as a caramel flavor sweet
