Golden to light amber. Spice, herbal with distinct rye character and nuances or strong aged wood. Distinct rye spiciness with vanilla undertones of strong aged wood. Warm, lingering spice. Made with a blend of the finest quality rye to create an extraordinarily smooth yet spicy finish, Knob Creek Rye Whiskey dares go where no Knob Creek has gone before. 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.
