Knob Creek 9 Year Single Barrel Reserve
Knob Creek // Kentucky, USA
As the name suggests, each bottle of Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve is made from an unblended, hand-selected barrel. The bourbon is aged in a rickhouse in Clermont, Kentucky for at least 9 years. However, unlike the standard small batch version, it is bottled at 120 proof instead of 100 proof. Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve may vary from bottle to bottle as is the nature of the category.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.

"The aroma has a nice sweet and spiced character to it with maple, vanilla, and toasted oak standing out. It sips slow and steady with everything in balance, especially with a bit of water added. Without the water, the finish is more warming on the throat, but not difficult to enjoy. Fans of the 100 proof will be happy."
