Knob Creek is a fantastic small batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey from the highly sought after Jim Beam Small Batch Range. Bottled at an honest 100 proof, Knob Creek harks back to the best bourbons of a century ago. Knob Creek is aged nine years, the longest of the Small Batch Bourbons. This extra ageing allows it to absorb more of the sugar in the wood, giving it a slightly sweeter taste and nose.
This exceptional, full-bodied bourbon strikes the senses with a maple sugar aroma, distinctive sweetness and rich, woody, caramel flavour with a long, smooth finish. Knob Creek is created to reflect the flavour, strength, care and patience that defined pre-prohibition whiskey, and is perfect straight or cooled slightly with one or two ice cubes.

"Almost arrogantly consistent: you know pretty well what you are going to get...and there it is. In this classic whiskeys case a whole bunch of honeycomb and vanilla, always more delicate than it first appears; salivating delivery with rye and barley absolutely hammering on the palate. The corn oil is there not for the flavour but effect - it is a fabulous mixture of dates and Demerara rum having the biggest say; wonderfully long with the oak toastiness now really beginning to bite... No whiskey in the world has a more macho name, and this is not for the faint-hearted. Big, hard in character and expansive, it drives home its point with gusto, celebrating it's explosive finish." - Jim Murray
Tasting Note: Toasted nuts, grain, oak on the nose with a rich, sweet, woody, full-bodied, almost fruit-like palate and a long, rich glowing finish.
