Knob Creek Limited Edition 2001
Knob Creek // Kentucky, USA
Knob Creek 2001 is the first ever limited-edition release from Knob Creek. It represents Fred Noe's first task after learning from his father Booker Noe, as he began taking care of Knob Creek beginning in 2001. Now long since a Master Distiller in his own right, Fred Noe has released this, a 14-year, 100-proof rendition.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Inviting vanilla, brown sugar, and rye spice on the nose, along with nutmeg, cloves, and oak. The palate showcases a pleasant, somewhat velvety mouthfeel. Dry oak is prominent along with cocoa powder and molasses. Rich, long lasting vanilla permeates the finish. Toss in an ice cube for more dark chocolate and a sharper rye spice. All told it's a smooth and flowing dram, seamless from start to finish. If this isn't hitting the spot, perhaps it's time to give up bourbon once and for all."
