Wonderfully sweet with a luxurious burn on the throat, with a rich butterscotch full flavour you will love, shame it's so difficult to buy in the UK. Lovely stuff.

Lovely. Not too sweet, brown sugar, woody, a little smokey, superb sipping drink.

Thanks for the reply. I will keep my fingers crossed.

@Essex Guy, We are always trying to get hold of new bottlings. Unfortunately, we are not able to confirm whether we will be getting the rye version just yet.

Heard alot of good things about Knob Creek so I decided to give it a try. And I'm glad I did. A great, simple, no-nonsense bourbon that is very rich and sweet, maybe too sweet for some. And like most whiskey, as the days pass by, it just keeps on getting better and better the further down the bottle you go. Happy sipping...
P.S. Will TWE be getting hold of any Knob Creek Rye?

A decent, if slightly unremarkable bourbon that never quite lives up to the hype. And at the price, I would always favour Wild Turkey or 100 proof Old Grand Dad.

One of the best and special bourbons, very completed body and rich aromas, rushing as first tasting so at finish notes...Undisputed classic bourbon as well...

The secret to drinking bourbon (and enjoying it) is a tiny sip. By taking a little sip the burn is limited or eliminated and in its place are many warming flavors to savor like: sweet corn, cr?me brule, maple sugar, slightly burnt caramel (but in a most pleasing manner!), a little dark chocolate, big oak, expansive smoked hickory, charcoal and vanilla.

Cr?me brule, maple sugar, slightly burnt caramel (but in a most pleasing manner!), a little dark chocolate, big oak and of course classic Jim Beam charcoal and vanilla. Great bourbon and me a scotch fan never thought I would say that.

The buzz off clever guerrilla marketing campaigns have made this brand a popular phenomenon here in the States, but there's no merit to the hype. I'm not pitching anti-trendiness just for the sake of being anti-trendy, this stuff just tastes mediocre. If you love it, that's great. If not, go taste some Blanton's or Old Rip Van Winkle.

The best I've had so far!

A lovely bourbon. It tastes similar to bottles that you can pay an awful lot more for.It's very smooth, and goes down great on its own or with a little ice. This has some real flavour. I don't taste the spice others do, rather just a really full flavour. I would certainly recommend it, perhaps my favourite bourbon to date!

I am relatively new to bourbons -- I have more experience with scotch -- but I know what I like. This is fantastic stuff -- to me it is potent with a nice lingering burn, and opens up well for sipping with the addition of just a little filtered water. The flavor that stays on the tongue is a very rich butterscotch/caramel/honey. It reminds me quite a bit of Glenmorangie's La Santa (aged in port casks) and really stands out when compared to the regular Jim Beam line.
