It’s everything we love about Knob Creek, turned up to full volume.

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 very little — remaining dedicated to reproducing a pre-Prohibition Bourbon style experience. They keep their line-up limited to a handful of core products and special releases and they do all of them right, winning awards and turning heads.

We have to admit that Knob Creek is one of our go-to Bourbons — especially for cocktails. And Knob Creek Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon is everything we like about Knob Creek turned up to full volume. All Knob Creek Whiskeys are small batch, but where their “normal” Straight Bourbon is NAS and 50% ABV, the Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon is aged a full nine years and pops out at a blistering 60% ABV. Yes, as a true single barrel, there will be subtle differences from bottle to bottle (you gotta love that).

Smartass corner:
Knob Creek Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon was developed personally by Booker Noe — grandson of Jim Beam himself and the namesake of Booker’s Bourbon.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Best “cheaper” bourbon I purchase.

This was my first time trying a high proof Bourbon. It took my breath away with the first taste, but once my mouth got used to it the flavors are amazing.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Love it
 
Clint
Clint,
Take your breathe away alcohol flavor. Eventually, you get the flavors once your lips go numb.

Sharp bourbon and another bourbon that I feel would be a good bourbon with a cigar. I like this one on ice.

Great spicy, vanilla, burnt caramel and oak flavor notes.

Not a fan. Very harsh strong bite

Great with Diet Coke
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, intense, Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a rich birth; while a rich & complex life leads to a long & balanced death adding notes of creme brulee, butter nut brittle & dried fruit chutney.
 
Michael
Michael,
I love this bourbon. Great for sipping neat. A drop of water does open it nicely as well. Good spice and brown sugar notes. Don’t let the 120 proof scare you away, its smooth beyond what the label would have you think.

Don’t drink it too fast.

Classic bourbon nose: brown sugar, vanilla and strong earthy smells on the back. Opens up nicely with a touch of water.
 
Crow
Crow,
Spicy and rough. Much harsher than Bookers ( similiar ABV ), but tasty with a little ice

Great bourbon! Sipping it as I type this review. Sweet finish. Does not seem like 120 proof.
 
Alex
Alex,
Just didn't like me. Even after acclimating to the bite I didn't get much from it. Ok at best

So much variation. Some are really amazing, some aren't. Gotta try store picks!
 
Todd
Todd,
It’s about the best $50 bottle of whiskey you can get. Great flavor and finish.
 
Sean
Sean,
Excellent. I've tried quite a few bourbons by this point, and this one is in my top 5. Excellent flavor profile and reasonably priced. This would be a good buy at $55-60/bottle. I found it at $28 on a sale from a normal $38. At this price, it really was a steal as normal 100 proof normally run $32 in the local stores. Can't go wrong with this one in my opinion.

Distinct flavor. Very good!!
 
Brian
Brian,
The flavor is rather strong with a nice little kick to finish.
 
Keith
Keith,
Aroma is definitely on the sweeter side but spice and toastiness round out flavors on the palate. High alcohol content is a bit harsh.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Aromatic and complex, this whiskey mixes sweet with spicy. I get more of the char, toast and pecan than sweet vanilla and maple but it’s all spice going down
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Very smooth with a finer note than the standard.
