The original that started it all, Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is still made to exacting standards. Knob Creek is aged to fully draw out the natural sugars in its charred white oak barrels. This exceptional, full-bodied bourbon strikes the senses with an oak aroma, a sweet, woody, full-bodied, almost fruity taste, with a long, rich finish. Created to reflect the flavor, strength, care, and patience that defined whiskey before Prohibition, Knob Creek is perfect neat or on the rocks with one or two ice cubes. Knob Creek is part of The Small Batch Bourbon Collection. Extra aged for a richer taste 100 proof reflects the strength, patience and flavor defined in pre-prohibition whiskey.
NOSE: Sweet corn, buttered popcorn and pistachio nuts in the early stages; later whiffs pick up well-endowed scents of butter, oaky vanilla, beeswax and linseed oil.
PALATE: entry is full-bodied, sweet and honeyed; at midpalate the taste profile turns drier, more intensely grainy-mashy and breakfast cereal-like.
FINISH: Notes of nougat, almonds, candy bar, and oak.
