    I love this stuff. Even with its 50% ABV it’s so smooth and easy drinking I can take it without ice or a drop of water, I even take it fishing with me in a hip flask because it’s such an easy drinker. Starts out sweet then finishes creamy and nutty with strong vanilla and oak spice notes. A quality crafted bourbon at a great price. If you haven’t had this yet you should buy some immediately for your bar. Cheers Knob Creek!

    Excellent strong bourbon, easy drinking when served over the ice but nice taste and fantastic aftertaste-full flavour.

    My go-to Bourbon perfect to drink straight or with a mixer. Full-flavoured, rich and robust tasting bourbon.

    Just had my first taste, neat on ice, strong on the palate yet smooth on the oesophagus, great finish. Where's my valve amp and blues selection?

    A rather rude boqua, petulant, but not over bearing. All jokes aside it's a great serious brew excellent fantastic job It's my go to ;)

    The flavors are not as smooth as i would have thought. The amazing aroma made me think it was going to be amazing but the flavor profile did not match. For a 9 year bottle i would think i would expect to taste more than alcohol and spice. I was thinking butterscotch and oak from the smell. Jim Beam Black was better in my opinion, for $10 less too.

    Strong alcohol and spicy flavours, nice sipped neat but I prefer a sweeter bourbon.

    I tried this in a bar in Morehead Kentucky. Barman, gave me a shot, with a small glass of Ale8.. tasted amazing. I drank a fair amount of JD when I was in my 20''s, this is nothing like JD. Being over in Kentucky, its easy to get hold of and cheap! I can sip this neat, with some ice, or with Ale8, or with coke/pepsi. The maple tasting version is awesome in tea and coffee.. again that for me is drinkable neat. I dont think the proof really makes a difference as some people have mentioned. It tastes great, left me with a good after taste. My girlfriend loves that taste and I got a lot of very nice kisses from her after drinking... lol

    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?
