Tasting Notes: Knob Creek 18year
Vital Stats: The Knob Creek 18yr Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey has a mash bill of 75% corn, 13% rye and 12% malted barley. It is 100 proof .
Appearance: Standard knob creek bottle with dark red amber bourbon inside.
Nose: Drunken cherries with lots of oak as would be expected. Some caramel and vanilla along with a toasted smoke. Some underlying mint freshness and cereals.
Palate: Lots of caramel with oak. It’s not overly sweet and has a tad bit of tart apple. We vary on it a little because of the proof. The cherry and honey Cheerios are very pleasant making it a nice sipping whiskey.
Finish: Medium with a beautiful Kentucky hug that won’t overpower you.
Overall: This is a porch sitting, grab a glass on a long fall day and think about life while enjoying this nice Kentucky bourbon. It’s a buy for both of us. Cheers
