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.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose is powerful with sweet maple, vanilla, wood, and a bit of char.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is rich, deep, and complex with roasted pecan, more vanilla, and brown butter that balances the strength of the spirit.

Finish
The finish is long… longer… longest with a warm throat.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Perhaps because of the family ties, when there was a serious fire at the Heaven Hill Distillery that seriously damaged production capacity, Jim Beam was one of two distilleries that graciously let their “friendly competitor” use some of their excess capacity, until repairs were completed.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
