Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye Whiskey


Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye Whiskey - 119.6 is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.


This is the first Limited Edition Rye released under the Knob Creek brand. While the label does not say “straight,” Beam Suntory has confirmed that it is. While it does not technically have an age statement, the press materials indicate it is 9 years old. This is further substantiated by the label indicating it was barreled in 2009.


Nose: Sweet vanilla and honey are enveloped in warming spices with a nice intensity. If I inhale just the right way, there’s a good amount of heat that digs its way into my nostrils making it even more pronounced. This makes for a rather bold yet still quite enjoyable aroma.
Palate: Black pepper and baking spices upfront give way to sweeter flavors of brown sugar, honey, and vanilla. The higher proof is manageable and sweet flavors do well to counter the spicy pop providing balance.
Finish: It starts with a Kentucky hug, as the spicy heat fills the back of the throat and hits with a bold intensity reminding you it’s almost 120 proof. The intensity fades quickly, leaving baking spices and charred oak against brown sugar and honey. It lingers, ultimately ending on a good note.
