Woodford Reserve - Kentucky Bourborn Timber Knobs
The Woodfords Reserve is a really excellent drop and with a nice bottle to match. But if you think the whiskey's good the knobs are even better. By removing the corks and gluing in a suitable "plain" knob you have a, very unique, dark timber knob. Here I have shown two types with a Al and black finished on the mounting knob.
Use eucalyptus oil to remove the final bits of glue from the seal across the top of the knob. Then rub the oil into the timber. Be careful not to get it in where you will glue in the mounting knob. The dark American Oak (I think ) will really shine.
