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. His work at KC is nothing short of legendary.
The 18-Year release is a very limited, super highly allocated one that usually alludes most whiskey fans. I was lucky enough to get us some today. Aged twice as long as the distillery’s flagship bourbon, the 18-Year-Old boasts a rich copper color and deep notes of caramelized oak to its extensive aging in Knob Creek’s Kentucky rack houses.
Rich and creamy notes of toasted oak, vanilla and caramel attack as soon as you pop this one open. Bottled at 100-Proof, you get a little bit of the heat on the front palate followed by rich oak, burnt sugar 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 memorable – something you’d expect for a Whiskey with this kind of age statement.
The prices on this one are all over the place. I see it going for over $400 some places but the average is right around $320/bottle. It’s crazy – I doubt that half the people that say they have it online even do. I had to work pretty hard to get these bottles. Our price is fantastic – it’s worth a heck of a lot more in the secondary markets, but for the Bourbon Buyers Club, you know I had to go low.
