Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve 9 Years Bourbon Whisky
The Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve 9 Years is bright medium copper, aromas of toffee, honey, dried apricots and candied ginger; warming alcohol, medium body, with a finish of caramel and spice.
A slight nutty wafts out of the glass to kick things off. Inhaling deeper presents notes of vanilla, light oak, and a dab of caramel. A hint of char and a dab of fresh marshmallows round things out. It’s an enjoyable way to start off the sip.
The pleasantness of the nose carries over to the palate. Rich oak builds a base, and is layered with green peppercorns, dabs of well balanced sweet vanilla, and lightly toasted caramel. It presents a lighter mouthfeel which is suiting to the overall lightness of the flavours present. Much like the no age statement (NAS) small batch, the flavors present are good and easily enjoyable, but they leave you wishing for them to be just a bit bold.
The finish is all business: aged oak, vanilla, and leather jump out front and are followed by a dash of black pepper and rye spice. A lingering oak and warming spice help to round things out. It's a simple, yet enjoyable way to end, and helps cap off the sip nicely.
