Thomas
Thomas,
longgggg finish! Spicy Carmel cinnamon
 
Paulo
Paulo,
Pretty sure Flaviar just blessed the kid... Was able to buy it for $90 , even though it says sold out, and still says sold out! This is not bad considering the demand, and knowing my state doesn't have the juice in stock anymore. Thank you Flaviar!
 
Donald
Donald,
Just bought this for $59 locally. Save your money but it’s wonderful.

Best knob creek on the shelf
 
David
David,
Herbaceous with a heavy note of tobacco and spice but still damn smooth and tasty
 
Brian
Brian,
Great Bourbon. Drinks beyond its age. At retail. Do NOT spend $130 on this.
 
Michael
Michael,
Excellent. Extremely smooth with just the right amount of bite at the end lingering.
 
Michael
Michael,
This is simply lovely. Definitely spicy with a medium finish. I picked up the caramel and clove. Worth the spend.

Knob Creek 12 year doesn’t disappoint! Smooth with just the right amount of heat.
 
James
James,
Good at the original 62.99 it was last week. The bait and switch seems to be the theme lately now its 102.99
 
Jerry
Jerry,
Classic Knob Creek with still enough heat, keeping the flavor profile inline just smoother! Allowing sipping and mixing, makes a fantastic Old Fashion!

Love it. I need nore
 
David
David,
Very good and very worth the hype.
 
Samuel
Samuel,
Taste of oak, vanilla up front and a slight caramel tone coalesced with 100 octane on the end (enjoyed neat; no complaint)...almost undetectable black pepper on finish; definitely, a different animal versus the 9 year old....this will have a permanent spot in my whiskey cabinet.
 
GEORGE
GEORGE,
Best of the KC’s! Great balance, plenty of oak, vanilla and dark fruits. Smooth with a long finish, really tasty.

Tasted like methanol..

This is a great bourbon. Maybe you should stick to White Claw.
Matthew
Matthew,
Amazing bourbon, great sipping whiskey.
 
Derik
Derik,
Super smooth. This tastes awesome. Lots of different flavors bouncing off the tongue. I got this because it was supposed to be compared to Bookers. Been a while since I've tasted Bookers which I really liked this one will have to compare just as well.

TR,
Stock up on this for sure... add this to your bar ASAP!!!

Well balanced. Drinks like a lighter proof, but holds up well with a bit of water or ice.
 
Richard
Richard,
I was hoping for more out of a 12 year. I love the 9-year single barrel and I was hoping for more complexity with 3 more years. It was good, some of the traditional Beam nutty flavor. Just a little short and a little flat. It’s good but didn’t meet my expectations.
 
Mike
Mike,
Probably one of my favorites to get released this year. If you're a fan on Knob Creek, this one won't let you down.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Right amount of char and vanilla hint of cherry. Great strength for sipping straight or in an old fashioned.
 
John
John,
One of the best I've tried! I actually like it more than the 15yr LE because the oak is not as prominent, making way for the other flavors to shine through (vanilla, caramel, peanuts).
 
James
James,
Strong flavor
 
guest
guest,
Great sipper.
 
Burton
Burton,
Aromas leap out of the glass. Very prominent syrup, cinnamon, caramel, vanilla. Flavors of cola, tea, vanilla. Nice long finish. I'm impressed.
 
Samuel
Samuel,
I have not opened it yet, but if it is as good as my 1st bottle it gets 10 stars
 
DENISE
DENISE,
excellent
 
DAVID
DAVID,
Tasted the same as the standard 9 yr old standard store bourbon. Not worth the extra money
Michael
Michael,
Taste them side by side...definitely not true.
Orlando
Orlando,
Vanilla and roasted peanuts opens up with a ice cube. Very good 7.5/10

Better than the 15
 
Sean
Sean,
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.
 
Rodney
Rodney,
Excellent
 
David
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.
