Knob Creek Single Barrel Select K&L Exclusive Barrel (Distilled 10/14/04, Warehouse I, Floor 6, Rick 3) Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1452702

Rumor is that these 15+ year old Knob Creek barrels have all disappeared. Clearly that isn't so. We locked down as many as possible for the holiday season. Whether we'll ever see the likes of these again, that's another story. Beam is pretty coy about exactly what ends up in the Knob Creek Single Barrel program or how much old whisky is available for it, but it's certainly some excellent stuff and much older than the 9 year age statement the single barrel program is purportedly drawing from. Distilled 10/14/04 the label somewhat misleadingly gives a "selected on date" of 8/4/19. Unfortunately, they won't confirm the actual bottling date, but given that these barrels didn't show up until December, it's a good bet they officially crossed the 15 year mark before being bottled. If they didn't they only missed by a tiny margin, and what's a few days when you don't actually put an age statement on the bottle?

This barrel is full of sweet apples and cherries on the nose and tons of vanilla. There is a bit of cinnamon, clove, and caramel as well. On the palate, the spice and sweetness of the barrel shows up in a big way. Caramel corn and black pepper dominate. The 120 proof is just about perfect.With a little water even more sweetness comes forward and the texture broadens a bit. The finish is generous and lengthy. It doesn't get much better than 15 year old Knob Creek.
