Knob Creek 9 Year Old K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #3128 Kentucky Bourbon (750ml)

SKU #1245900

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. There are folks out there who claim they can pick the signature Beam flavor out of any line up, but in a recent blind tasting our staff guessed Four Roses across the board. The heavy accents of pencil shavings, savory spice, powerful force, and light vanilla are a trademark of the Lawrenceburg legend, but in this case their emanating from a bottle of Beam. This cask is a hot, hot deal considering that bottles of Four Roses single barrel now retail for $67, so expect the same level of quality for $20 less.

Barrel 3128 has aromas that are dominated by vanilla notes. In the mouth, it is balanced with a nice richness, but is not too sweet, and has a nice woody nuances. It tastes like it is the driest of the three exclusive single barrels that we now have at K&L. This is an interesting and wonderful bottle of bourbon.
