The Knob Creek, Cask Strength Rye is a 2018 Limited Release. This particular bottle is 59.8% ABV and was stored in warehouse ‘A’. Distilled and bottled by the folks at Jim Beam, this is one nice sipping rye.
The nose is sweet with vanilla notes but if you breath deep you will find the spice as well. The taste starts full of spice before giving way to those sweeter, caramel notes that balance out the spice and higher ABV. The finish is a nice mix of wood, vanilla and spices; all and all a really balanced taste.
There is nothing particularly crazy about this pour but I like everything about it.
