Knob Creek 15 Year Old 100 proof LIMITED EDITION Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey 750 mL

$149.99

The Whiskey Jug – This is freaking good. Not a significant jump over the Knob Creek 12, but enough to say if I had to pick between the two I’d pick the 15 by a hair. Both are excellent and showcase how good Knob Creek can be at higher ages. It’s a brand that wears age well.

I know it all has to do with the barrel picking, warehouse location, etc. so they can grab the flavor they’re looking for, but that’s the challenge and they meet it well. It’s often hard to reconcile releases like this with the standard Jim Beam White. Compared to the JB core, Knob Creek 15 Years is a world away without ever leaving the distillery grounds.

TASTING NOTES

EYE
Polished oak

NOSE
Heavy oaky depth and dried cherries, caramel, nuts, copper, musty spice, char and some light vanilla and menthol. This is heavy, like coats-the-sinuses-level heavy, and I love every second of it.

PALATE
Heavy oaky depth and dried cherries, caramel, nuts, copper, musty spice, char and some light vanilla and menthol. A carbon copy of the aroma but with the earthy-rustic-farmy-darkly-sweet profile dialed up a notch and making it feel like this Knob Creek 15 Years gets heavier as it goes.

FINISH
Long -> Oak, caramel, dark fruit, spice fade out in a way that’s almost light… odd.

BALANCE, BODY and FEEL
Great balance, full body and a warm oily feel.
