    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?

    excellent bourbon thats ver smooth, on par with elijah craig.

  • MSR 7 February 2011

    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...

    just found my first bottle. as yet un-opend. will leave it till i am not working. work and booze dont mix. so looking forward to it though. i have never met a bourbon i did not like.

    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.
