Knob Creek is a well-known name and is distilled under the direction and supervision of master distiller, Fred Noe. If you don’t know Fred, you should. He is the son of legendary master distiller, Booker Noe and is the grandson of Jim Beam. Knob Creek 12-Year was originally released in 2019 as a limited edition. This bourbon is distilled from a mash bill of 77% Corn, 13% Rye, and 10% Malted Barley and bottled at 100 Proof.
Rich and creamy notes of toasted oak, vanilla, caramel, and fresh baked Bundt cake immediately flood the sense’s as soon as you pop this one open. Bottled at 100-Proof, you get a little bit of heat on the front palate followed by rich oak, leather and freshly baked bread. As it starts to open, you get some sweeter, creamy vanilla notes that cream in as well as campfire s’mores and a dash of pepper. The finish is long, and a bit spicy which leaves a memorable aftertaste and leaves you wanting more.
