Knob Creek Twice Barreled Rye

Rye — Kentucky, USA

2.5 out of 5 stars
First tasting, served neat. This is a dark whiskey, really like the color. Definitely get some sweetness on the nose. Taste is sweet as well, lots of vanilla/caramel. The sweetness lingers on the tongue. Where it's falling short of me is the finish. The finish to me is pretty harsh. But not a proof harshness, as I've also been sipping Jim BiB which is also 100 proof. There's a flavor I can't quite place on the finish that comes across pretty harsh and lingers for a bit, ruining the experience. I paid $18 for this, and glad I did not pay more. I'll try with ice next visit to see if that improves the finish.
