"Knob Creek Quarter Oak does display some added complexity from the quarter oak aging treatment, but tends to drift off as it finishes in both the nose and palate. The nose is lead by floral (dandelion) and vanilla aromas with some bread-y notes in the background. The palate offers some 'banana' esters with vanilla carrying it through to the finish."
