Knob Creek 9 Year Old K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #3080 Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

SKU #1245898

On a recent trip to Kentucky, our buyers paid their first ever visit to Jim Beam to taste barrels with esteemed distiller Fred Noe, son of the late, great Booker Noe. With supplies of mature, age-labeled Kentucky Bourbon on the decline due to increasing demand, they were searching for value in market with few true deals as of late. Jim Beam, being the state's largest distiller of Bourbon, still has healthy supplies of 9+ year old casks and was happy to make them available for the boys upon their arrival. Bottled with at a whopping 120 proof, these hand-selected casks of Beam, bottled under the brand's Knob Creek label are not for the faint of heart. Cask #3080 brings the power and punch on the entry, but shows a more delicate and nuanced character on the finish. In the between the diminuendo are flavors of toasted oak, burnt vanilla, and even floral flutter before the heavy herbaceous notes and charred wood spice dominate the finish. It's a whole lotta whiskey for less than $50 and it definitely shows a different side of the standard Beam profile.

This barrel offers sweet caramel aromas. In the mouth there is plenty of caramel sweetness, but it is balanced and not too heavy. There is a nice long finish.

United States

- 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.
