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.
50.0 USD per Bottle

    @Swahili1 not a drop? I’m impressed. I needed a whopping block of ice at this 120 proof.

  • Swahili1

    couldn't agree more. If you were to compare quality/cost per ounce this would definitely be a top 10 bourbon. the last 2, 14+ year picks I had didnt even need a drop of water. Reminded me of turtles candy

    Nice Review! For that price those are pretty hard to beat!

  • PBMichiganWolverine

    @Zachary-Robbins personally, I’m loving the direction some of these have taken in terms of quality and value ( ezra 7yr BiB, and Dickel 13yr BiB, for example). This is in the same light...a really good 15yr CS bourbon at $50!?? That’s value.

  • PBMichiganWolverine

    @Ctrexman yeah...I’m usually an ounce on Friday and one on Sunday. That low intake explains my high inventory

  • Zachary-Robbins

    Nice, I found it mellowed out after being open a month and was eminently sippable. Glad you like it.

    "one ounce with ice over a span of an hour."......... well,guess im quite the lush then

  • PBMichiganWolverine

    I’ve not tried their rye, but in general I like rye more than bourbon—-I imagine that to be pretty good.

    Ah I love what I've had from KC so far and that's just the lower ends. I think USPS has an aromatherapy sample of Knob Creek 9 CS Rye with my name on it somewhere in transit!
