Knob Creek Rye Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $38)

SKU #1109721 Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark Unlike the Knob Creek bourbons (which are 9 years old), there’s no age statement with this new rye, which tastes relatively younger. It’s 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. (Summer 2012) Inner quote mark

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Look for a dry, distinctly oaky, toasty profile, with plenty of deep, dark toffee and cayenne winding into the spicy, warming finish. Dilution pulls the flavors back to vanilla and buttered toast. Small batch. (KN) Inner quote mark (7/2016)

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 Jim Beam's profile in the burning hot cocktail scene. While this bottling shares the eminent Knob Creek name, the profile is very different. Losing 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.
