Released in the summer of 2017, this single barrel release is bottled in honor of Knob Creek's 25th Anniversary which was first released in 1992. It is not only a single barrel release, but also bottled at cask strength, so variations in proof and exact taste profile are to be expected. The bourbon is aged 12-13 years depending on the release and will be bottled at 60-62.5% ABV. 300 barrels are expected to be included in this bottling.

Tasting Notes

"Individual barrels chosen to be bottled for Knob Creek's 25th anniversary may vary slightly, but the overall execution is excellent. Despite the whiskey's long time in wood and high proof, it's neither too oaky not too hot. It's wonderfully balanced, with a warming spiciness and moderate vanilla notes. Aiming for no extremes, it's simply very easy to enjoy, and a worthy bottling to celebrate the brand's anniversary."
