The most powerful Knob Creek Rye yet.

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.

We’ve always had a soft-spot for Knob Creek Whiskeys. They were high-proof cocktail-making gold long before the current trend of stronger drams took hold. And everything that we love about Knob Creek products is ramped up even higher with Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye Whiskey.

Knob Creek "normal" Straight Rye pours at a lovely 50% ABV. Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye Whiskey tips the scales at 59.8% ABV. The combination of proof-heat and Rye spice are powerful indeed. It’s nine years old, spending all that time in the famous "Warehouse A" — the oldest storage building at the Beam Distillery. And the first release won "Best Rye Whiskey" in San Francisco.

John
John,
A big spicy rye with an incredibly long, delicious finish. Pairs perfectly with a cigar.
 
Hunter
Hunter,
My batch was a Barrel Selection for my local liquor store and wow. I sought something with a punch. It hits hard initially with spice and barrel before easing into gingerbread, brown sugar, cinnamon, and more comforting and sweet spices. Exactly what I want in a rye, unique and powerful enough to hang on the shelf, but not too weird to overstay its welcome.

Curt,
Solid rye, needs a little more spice to compete with OF Rye
 
Crow
Crow,
This is barely a rye (55% I believe) and its rough. Definitely not my favorite rye.
 
Craig
Craig,
Really like this Knob Creek Oak, nice aroma to start, small bite smooth finish. Too expensive on your site though.

Just not for me

Curtis,
It was good. Not the best rye I’ve had and I prefer their bourbons more (love their bourbons) but I liked that the spice and rye flavors didn’t dominate and the Carmel flavor still showed through really well.

A great rye but be careful, it will sneak up on you in a Manhattan
 
Crow
Crow,
Barely a Rye ...low 50%’s. Strong and astringent it has a rough nose. Best on ice or with some water.
 
Erik
Erik,
Really enjoy the standard Knob Creek rye, so found the barrel strength offering a bit disappointing following the huge price difference
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Probably my favorite rye next to willett but completely different it's a face punch of flavor balanced with sweetness
