Knob Creek Single Barrel Select Bourbon W-X F-04 R-046 (Chris Knapp)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USA
Wow...this packs a punch. I picked up a store selection ( Adelphia Wine out of NJ), for $50. I figured one can’t go wrong at that price. It’s almost 15 years old ( barreled 10/2004 and bottled 8/2019), single barrel, from warehouse 1, floor 6 of 8, and rack 1. 120 proof. I had to add ice and let it sit for a while, sipping slowly while watching Narcos on Netflix. Thick and viscous, with a burnt orange color. I can nose this all day: cherries and burnt sugar. Taste is reminiscent of ECBP...orange rinds and sugar. It’s a slow sipping bourbon, meant to enjoy that one ounce with ice over a span of an hour. At $50, won’t break the bank, and on par with a ECBP or Stagg Jr.
