The folks down at Beam Global Spirits & Wine announced today a new member of the Knob Creek family of bourbon.
The new product is in a similar shaped bottle but in addition to the Knob Creek name on the bottle there is a large “9″, representing the aging of the bourbon. This is their first-ever single barrel reserve called, appropriately, “The Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve.”
According to information from the company, the bourbon is bottled at near barrel proof that, they say, maintains its strong rich flavors and aromas. The bourbon is then cut with water and bottled individually. Each batch of the product would vary in taste, color and aroma.
According to the company you may expect even more wood, vanilla, caramel and smokey notes. You can expect to pay about $40 for a 750ml bottle.
I’ll pick up a bottle and give it a try. If you get a taste someplace, send me a note and tell me how it compares to other bourbons you have enjoyed.
Remember, enjoy responsibly.
