Knob Creek Straight Rye
Knob Creek // Kentucky, USA
Released in the middle of 2012 this "patiently aged" rye is the first from Knob Creek, and joins a line of ryes offered by its parent company Beam Global. The rye is 'patiently aged' with a blend of up to 9 years old. Bottled at 100 proof, this is not only a solid introduction into the spicy and herbal world of rye, it's also a great base for classic cocktails.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Nose is filled with dried herbs, rye spice, and oak. This woody note continues on the palate adding some warmth from the heat along with dried cherries and cigar tobacco. Quite the oily mouthfeel here. Finish continues with char spice and more dried fruits coming through."
