Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - (Tried & True Award)- Enticing aromas of oats and honey waft from the glass. Focused on the palate with plenty of hearty spice and whole grain flavor. Round and earthy, it leaves the mouth with a pleasant flavor of brown bread. (Apr 2016)
Wine Enthusiast 92 points - Though this new offering meets the technical criteria for rye (a mash bill of at least 51% rye), the sweet, caramelly flavors suggest a high-rye Bourbon-which makes sense considering that Knob Creek is best known for its Bourbon. Expect bold almond, oak, brown butter and pecan pie flavors. The drying baking-spice finish is more characteristic of rye, and has less bite than might be expected of a 100-proof spirit. (Sep 2013)
Made with a blend of the finest quality rye to create an extraordinarily smooth yet spicy finish.
