Knob Creek Single Barrel 'Reserve' Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1064870 94 points Whisky Advocate

 This new single barrel expression of Knob Creek tastes very similar to the original “small batch” Knob Creek (when brought down to the same alcohol level). If anything, it’s slightly drier, more elegant, not as heavy on the palate, and more sophisticated — but I am reaching here. The similarity is a good thing, because I really enjoy the original expression. Keeping in mind that no two barrels are exactly alike, your decision to purchase the single barrel might just come down to whether you want to pay a little more for a higher strength version, and whether knowing that it might taste a little different than the standard small batch bottling excites you. This is a stylish, big, broad-shouldered bourbon with a thick, sweet foundation (nutty toffee, pot still rum, maple syrup) peppered with spice (cinnamon, but also vanilla and evergreen) and dried fruit. Dry, warming, resinous finish. (Winter 2010)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Though complex and flavorful, the extremely high proof of this nine-year-old small-batch Bourbon means it won’t be for everyone. Dose it with plenty of water (or your mixer of choice) to enjoy the dry character with notes of vanilla, leather, orange peel, clove, red-hot cinnamon and a long caramel finish.  (9/2014)
