Knob Creek Bourbon
Knob Creek // Kentucky, USA
Introduced in 1992, Knob Creek is part of the Jim Beam Small Batch Bourbon Collection along with Basil Hayden, Booker's, and Baker's. This Kentucky straight bourbon is bottled at 100 proof. It had an age statement of 9 years, but as of late 2016 the age statement has been removed. The goal of the brand is to achieve a flavor profile of nine years, using older and younger bourbons in its composition.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Very complex nose flowing back and fourth between oak, orange, butter, corn, burnt sugar, leather and hints of vanilla. Palate is just as complex with pepper, corn, caramel, oak and heat (it is 100 proof). The finish is moderate with the oak and sugars coming through."
