Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve 9 Yr (750ml)
Carefully hand selected, barrel-by-barrel, to bring you a robust, mature flavor. It's full bodied with a smoky aroma and while filled with near barrel strength heat, it is extraordinarily smooth and nuanced. It has even more of the rich wood and vanilla notes that make Knob Creek the standout bourbon that it is.
Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve is long, full and easy to sip whether you choose to enjoy it neat, on the rocks or cut with distilled water.
Knob Creek Bourbon was named after a little creek that runs just south of the distillery, the same creek that ran by Abraham Lincoln's childhood home. Booker Noe, 6th generation Beam and master distiller emeritus created Knob Creek to reflect the strength, flavor, care, and patience that defined pre-prohibition bourbon. The bottle embodies the handmade look and feel of the turn-of-the century bourbon as well. It is reminiscent of a bootlegger's flask with newspaper scrawled on the label, harkening back to the decade's old custom of wrapping bottles in newspaper at the distillery.
"This is a stylish, big, broad-shouldered bourbon with a thick, sweet foundation... peppered with spice... and dried fruit... Malt Advocate magazine rating: 94/100." -John Hansell, Malt Advocate 11/29/2010
