Knob Creek’s signature Bourbon with a loud and proud age statement of twelve years.

Knob Creek is one of the special “small batch” brands of Beam-Suntory. Along with it’s sister labels — Booker’s, Baker’s, and Basil Hayden’s — it’s tailored to the more discriminating Bourbon-lover (and that means YOU). The Knob Creek brand was first launched in 1992, and since then they have changed it very little — remaining dedicated to reproducing a pre-Prohibition style Bourbon experience with a higher ABV that makes it a Bourbon-of-Choice for discriminating cocktail aficionados everywhere while winning awards and turning heads.

Knob Creek’s signature Bourbon is famously aged to taste. And a marvelous taste it is, too. But this dram is something different. Knob Creek 12 Year Old Bourbon has a bold age statement right there on the label — twelve years in new oak. And just like its younger sibling, Knob Creek 12 Year Old is bottled at 50% ABV. All you have to do is add up those stats — premium crafted Bourbon, aged twelve years, bottled at a high proof. What you have here is magic in a bottle my friend.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Samuel,
I have not opened it yet, but if it is as good as my 1st bottle it gets 10 stars

DENISE,
excellent
 
DAVID
DAVID,
Tasted the same as the standard 9 yr old standard store bourbon. Not worth the extra money

Great bourbon at a great price. Super smooth with a wonderful nose and finish.
 
Brad
Brad,
This was a very smooth bourbon. I picked up vanilla and dark fruit on the nose. Had a great mouth feel and a nice finish. For the price, I would consider picking up a bottle, but not an outstanding value. Enjoyed the experience.

David,
Great bourbon. One of my go to's. In a blind tasting, my friends and I liked this as much as Blantons (which is usually our favorite). Give it a try.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
It is noticeably smoother than KC9 Small Batch, and one of my go-to's when giving a newer bourbon drinker something higher-end but easy to sip. A little expensive considering you can find a KC SiB Store Pick for around the same price and often less, but this is easy to find and a clear upgrade over regular KC. But not in the same class as any of the Store Picks IMO (or the amazing KC 25th Anniversary).
 
Craig
Craig,
Definitely delivers rich flavor and nice spice for the price! At $60 it’s a competitor with other bourbons at this price point. I would not pay much more for it and if it was cheaper it would be an everyday sipper for sure.
 
James
James,
Really smooth, oaky bourbon. Feels rich in the mouth. I’d rather have two 9 years at the same cost as one 12 year.
 
Keith
Keith,
I currently have about twenty different boutbons in my bourbon room, and this is one of my fav's.
 
Erik
Erik,
Absolutely delicious, if you like the Jim Beam nuttiness and a healthly dose of oak in your bourbon then this will do you just right
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Huge flavorful punch of spice followed by long lingering sweetness one of my favorite ryes
 
Paige
Paige,
On the nose distant notes of black pepper display while toffee soaked peaches and dried cherries are abundant. Burnt oak and rye spice begin on the palate, followed by vanilla caramelized peanuts on the mid, trailed by traces of worn leather and buttered waffles on the backend. This 12 Year has a slightly oily mouthfeel and the finish is quite thin given its age statement. Final notes of honeyed oak, cinnamon and caramels taper quickly. . All in all, it’s a great age stated release from Knob Creek but falls a little short on the finish for me as if it was tailored for the mid and backend palate in my opinion.
