About this deal

Knob Creek is an American brand of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey produced by Beam Suntory (a subsidiary of Suntory Holdings of Osaka, Japan) at the Jim Beam distillery in Clermont, Kentucky. Even when first encountering the aroma you’ll get that mix of spice and sweetness, with granary toast melding with toasty oak and a spicy touch of rye. In the mouth: Very lean and firm to begin, with a pert kiss of limestone and some intense floral notes, reminiscent of rosewater or perfume. The palate is lively and rich with notes of candy floss and nut oil, as well as a hint of spice and dark chocolate and charred oak. When prohibition was lifted in 1933, the sudden demand for bourbon presented a dilemma for whiskey-makers as they had to contend with the difficulty of starting distillations from scratch while emerging in a new, competitive market.

The company, which was founded at the end of the 18th century, is particularly known for its mass-produced products, which can also be found in numerous local supermarkets. It is named for the area in Kentucky where Abraham Lincoln grew up, it is said that the creek nearly claimed his life when he was swimming. my palate is by no means refined but I picked out the butter and clove along with the slightly dry finish. The primary expression of the brand is aged for 9 years and bottled at 100 proof (higher than the typical 2 years and 80 proof that are the minimums required by U. Aromas of leather and forest floor greet the nose and are enhanced by dark cherry, plum and vanilla oak.One of the younger Flor de Caña offerings, this 7 year old rum is perfectly primed for mixing into all your favourite rum cocktails. Bottles were 100 proof and aged for 14 years, which is 5 years longer than the Original 100 and Knob Creek Single Barrel.

Frank took a look at the 15 year old, while David considered the oldest of the Knob Creek siblings, the 18 year old. And we finish by meticulously aging our whiskey in white oak barrels with maximum char, for an unmistakable richness and signature sweetness. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Unfortunately, due to laws/regulations we cannot deliver spirit/liquor products to any PO Box addresses or in some cases to all states, countries, or providences. A desire to recreate a style and standard of bourbon that existed prior to this state of affairs was the motivation for Noe to establish Knob Creek as a brand.

Thus far Knob Creek SB 9 yo has outscored 4 roses SB, Old Forester 100 proof, Larceny 92 proof, and one of my favs Russells SB 110 proof.
