Creamed Corn & Vanilla Pudding

After reading David Wondrich's column in my newest issue of Esquire magazine called $30 Hooch, I couldn't wait to get out and grab myself a bottle or two of some of these delicious sounding whiskeys he wrote about. For the record his list of the best whiskeys that can be had from between $30 & $35 is as follows

Woodford Reserve ($31.99)
Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year ($29.99)
Bushmills Black Bush ($33.99)
Chivas Regal 12 ($29.99)
Suntory Yamakazi 12 Year Single Malt($34.99)

So here I am sipping the vanilla goodness that is Woodford Reserve. I can assure you That over the next few weeks I will add the others to my home bar. Tonight I also bought a bottle of Knob Creek Bourbon that was on special for $20.99 (Sharp's Discount Liquors, for the locals that like Knob Creek).

It got me thinking as I tried to find room on my liquor shelves "Tiki, you should inventory your bar". So I did. Now I am going to bore you with the details.
