Cask Strength Rye Whiskey 750ml
Jim Beam Distillery once again captures the hearts and mouths of many an authentic whiskey lover with this 2018 release of Knob Creek Cask Strength rye. Bottled in 2009 with a finished cask strength of 119.6% proof, this NAS rye is said to be aged for a minimum of 9 years with an undisclosed mash bill (rumored to be at least 55% rye) and is finished in new charred oak casks. On the first pour, the nose is greeted by warm spices over butterscotch lathered oak, citrus, dark fruits, and baked biscuit cookies. The palate is hit with notes of more spice, grapefruit zest, raisins, dark fruits, and butterscotch layered in roasted grain cereal and toffee.

About the brand
Knob Creek is a brand of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey produced by Beam Suntory at the Jim Beam distillery in Clermont, Kentucky. It is one of the four Jim Beam small batch bourbon brands targeted for the high-end liquor market. Its siblings in the line are Booker's, Baker's, and Basil Hayden's. The primary expression of the brand is bottled at 100 proof (higher than the typical 80 that is the minimum required by U.S. Federal labeling requirements). Knob Creek was aged for nine years until late 2016, when Beam Suntory removed the age statement from the label due to tight inventory that could not be guaranteed to be aged the full nine years. In mid 2019 Beam Suntory announced the age statement would return to bottle labels sometime in 2020 Knob Creek comes in a rectangular bottle with a corked or twist-on cap and wax-sealed top. The bourbon has a dark, golden-brown color. According to the company, this is due to the relatively long aging process, which allows it to absorb more sugar from the wood than is the case for the other Jim Beam Small Batch brands. The company describes the flavor as "rich, sweet, woody, full-bodied, almost fruity", and the aroma as "toasted nuts, grain, oak". In 2009, Beam ran a campaign to publicize their shortage of Knob Creek bourbon. Demand exceeded the 2000 forecast, when the stock began the aging process.

Nose is orange strip hearty rye bread nut weak caramel and mellow sugar treat and heating flavors. In the sense of taste there is acrid apple cinnamon rye flavor pepper vanilla and cayenne. Finish has earthy colored raisins earthy colored sugar mint and draws out into a long zest overwhelming get done with menthol nutmeg and eucalyptus. It balances chewy mouthcoating and suffering with a twofold clobber of rye and verification heat that is as tasty as soul warming.

Dim bronze shading. Nectar and carmel on the button. Beverages hot with a solid licorice note. Slick and woody mid-sense of taste. Pleasant long rye bread finish. A very much made Handle River item.

The nose here is an extremely pleasant zesty rye. Starts smooth on the taste buds however then quickens through some fiery ness and completes somewhat unpleasant for my enjoying and it waits. Not an immense devotee of drinking ryes straight so I might be one-sided. This did be that as it may make the best (and generally costly) Manhattan Ive ever had. The vermouth and fruits totally offset the harsh completion and made for a tasty and smooth Manhattan.
