Knob Creek Single Barrel Select Rye Barrel #7067 (Bill's Package Store)
Rye — Kentucky, USA
Tasted August 11, 2019
Barrel 6403 Gordon's Private Barrel Selection Color is ruddy copper. Nose is like Sunday brunch, with cinnamon and brown sugar, maple syrup on waffles, a soft vanilla like condensed milk, and a gentle rye spice in the background with something like bubblegum. Lots of heat on the palate, rye spice comes to the forefront, accompanied by more baking spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger), and charred oak. Less sweetness on the palate, but hints of vanilla, caramel and cherry cola. Full bodied but somewhat dry mouthfeel. Long, hot, dry finish with lots of charred oak. More baking spices and a light sweetness like a drizzle of honey on toasted rye bread. This is an amazing rye, and top notch barrel pick.
