The newest expression from Knob Creek is a cask strength rye whiskey. I initially assumed it would be hard to find but maybe it was my lucky day since I found it at the first store I went to. Aged 9 years and uncut and unfiltered I am hoping this is similar to the Booker’s Rye.
Laid down in 2001, by Booker Now and subsequently finished by his successor Fred Noe, this passing of the torch expression is the oldest to date–at 14 years–for the Knob Creek brand.
Hard to not think of where I was in 2001. And like this bourbon I hope that the changes throughout the years have created something better then the sum of the original ingredients.
Now onto the review.
