Knob Creek Kentucky Staight Bourbon Whiskey 9 Years Old 50% 700ml (Kentuckey, USA)


Named after Abraham Lincoln’s boyhood home in Kentucky, Knob Creek is arguably bourbon at its finest, often upstaging Bookers (Beam’s intended flagship) in comparative tastings. Created to represent whisky before it was mass produced, Knob Creek embodies the look, feel and taste of pre-prohibition bourbon. Bottled at 50% alc./vol. like all good bourbons were a century ago, Knob Creek is aged nine years, giving it the distinction of being one of the oldest Small Batch Bourbons. Extra maturation allows it to absorb more of the sugar in the wood, giving it a slightly richer taste and nose.

Tasting note: Deeply coloured with a hefty, vanilla and caramel-soaked bouquet with black pepper and zippy, apply-rye adding vibrancy and balance. Muscular and impressively weighted, with no pretensions to being anything but a Kentuckian: rich corn and oils compete with vanilla custard, caramel and dried coconut, countered by balancing minty freshness and white pepper through the finish. High pitch vanilla and fresh-cut oak resonate in the aftertaste. Really gutsy, and pretty much text book for the category. Hard to imagine the value getting better than this. 50% Alc./Vol.
