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