Knob Creek Rye 750ml

SKU #1109721 Whisky Advocate

 Unlike the Knob Creek bourbons (which are 9 years old), thereís no age statement with this new rye, which tastes relatively younger. Itís bracing, vibrant, and spicy. (The rye contribution is unmistakable.) Cinnamon spice and crisp mint dominate, with charcoal, botanicals, ginger, nutmeg, honeyed fruit, vanilla, and caramel. Warming spice finish. Its dynamic personality should shine in cocktails, but from a sipping, drinking neat perspective, I wish it was a little older like its siblings.

K&L Notes

Jim Beam's entry into the super premium Rye has really made some waves. While there is no age statement, this contains Rye up to 9 years old. Voted "Best Rye" and brandishing a double gold medal, the Knob Creek Rye has elevated the Jim Beam's profile in the burning hot cocktail scene. While this bottling shares the eminent Knob Creek name, the profile is very different. Loosing the ultra-forward sweetness, you're going to feel a strong herbal rye spice in its place. Very robust without being overly thick, you'll find this holds up nicely in your cocktails thanks to the Knob Creek tradition of bottling at 100 proof. A nice addition to the burgeoning Rye category.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
