Knob Creek is a special small batch brand of Beam-Suntory. It's tailored — along with its sister labels Booker’s, Baker’s, and Basil Hayden’s — to the more discriminating Bourbon lover. You.
The Knob Creek brand was launched in 1992 and hasn't changed much since, besides adding additional products to the lineup, including a Single Barrel Reserve, a Straight Rye, and a Knob Creek Maple Bourbon, all of which are multiple award-winning expressions.
Knob Creek Patiently Aged Kentucky Straight Bourbon is the core Knob Creek product. It's one of our favorite daily drinkers, especially for cocktails. It is bottled at a full 100 proof / 50% ABV so it comes with a kick.
Maple and caramel sweetness to smell. Turns quickly to strong fruit and zest on the tongue. Finishes with spice and wood/nuttiness. My favorite of the star spangled tasting box in came in.
My old go to 5 years or so back, couldn't go back to makers after this.
Great stuff, especially from US ;)
Strong and smooth.
It is an outstanding, balanced, Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a rich & spicy birth; while a full & spicy life leads to a long & oily death with notes of char, cocoa, vanilla & brown butter.
Mmmmm! Love the color of this bourbon and how smooth it goes down with a spice finish. Definitely a new home bar staple.
Good rich tasting bourbon with lots of sweetness to it. Maple, caramel, and a lot of spice, and maybe a slightly bitter aftertaste. Very very strong to drink neat, and even with some water, it packs a punch. But it’s enjoyable.
I liked it very much. I had it with a splash of water to take the initial burn off of it but, it was crisp and smooth with a hint of vanilla.
Good bourbon, a little more burn than flavor at times, but overall good.
Nice easy drinker.
This is a classic that will definitely be enjoyed again.
Too spicy for me, but good bourbon.
Nose ; Vanilla, charred oak, butterscotch and cinnamon,
Taste ; Complex with wood, orange zest, butterscotch & baking spices,
Finish ; Straight, powerfull, long with cinnamon and caramel,
Love this bourbon. Great strong taste on ice and develops into a lovely sweet drink the longer its left. Also great in a Godfather.
This is an incredibly smooth bourbon and the cinnamon & clove both really come through nicely without being overly spicy hot. For being slightly higher abv than most straight bourbons, the higher abv really doesn't show itself in the flavor.
High alcohol, very spicy
Smooth and easy, full of flavor for a great price.
Strong bourbon but not not memorable. Had to really think about the notes so no wow factor
Good alternative bourbon - doesn’t approach the complexity of Blanton’s, but a good evening drink.
It’s just OK. Seems to have an edge that’s less interesting than we prefer.
Surprisingly delicious, pleasant aroma and smooth mouth feel. Nice flavor. This bourbon is a must have for any home bar. It is an absolutely delicious bourbon with a wonderful experience from start to finish.
This is my go-to. It has great flavor on the front end, and enough burn on the back end to know that I'm drinking a good whiskey.
I ask myself often now why I resisted drinking this awesome bourbon for so Long. I suppose just straight stubbornness! It’s strong, but full of spice and sweet. The smell is wonderful. I shall add this to my daily rotation!! 💯 😜🥃
It's what got me I to whiskey, smooth
Pleasantly surprised by this one, never tried it until now. Smooth with some low heat on the finish.
I know every bar in America has this on the shelf....but not mine. Not a fan.
Did not enjoy. Have not tried a Jim Beam product yet that I enjoyed.
One of my favorite one to own
Good burbon like it supposed to be.
Strong but full of sweet corn
Warm, brown sugar aroma. When sipping it neat, the 100 proof packs a punch and adds to the zing. The spice in the flavor was a little overpowering for me, but it's one of the first bourbons I've tried and I enjoyed it.
Love me some knob creek , vanilla, sugar cookie, some licorice
Wonderful. My favorite bourbon whiskey
My type of Bourbon. Still undecided between this and Four Roses SB as the favourite of the limited bourbons I’ve tried. Strong, unrelenting but also very rewarding. You feel the 50%
Good, a bit spicy.
my favorite bourbon
Smooth with a sweet heat flavor. Doesn't have the long finish I prefer in my bourbon.
Caramel and a bit of pepper. Not too astringent and my go to cocktail bourbon.
Always have it available
Perfect Old Fashioned
Full of flavor and heat, delicious!!
Smooth for its strength and richness
one ice cube only works well
People forget about the big names because of trends but honestly this brand never disappoints
High heat, alcohol forward, spirit with caramel, nuts, & baking spices. Best if drank slightly diluted.
Single barrel is the best! Try it neat or with a splash of water.
Smooth. Won't notice that it is 120 proof
My favorite adult beverage. Straight up, on the rocks or an old fashioned, I love it any way served.
Strong but greatly American!
Very NiceVery nice
This has been a staple in my home for years. Great on the rocks without breaking the bank.
