The Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

By Matt Goldstein

Owned by Jim Beam and distilled and bottled by the Knob Creek Distillery, The Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve is hand selected barrel by barrel and the first ever single barrel bourbon by Knob Creek.  This Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is naturally aged in new, charred American Oak barrels.  Bottled at barrel proof (120) in order to maintain the natural essence of the barrel, the Knob Creek is an immediate classic.  “Unlike other bourbons, which are blended together from multiple barrels to create a uniform taste, each barrel of Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve, once hand-selected, is cut with water and bottled individually in order to preserve its integrity and unique flavor profile. This process allows for variations in taste, color and aroma in each batch of bourbon.”  We love this bourbon!  The Knob Creek Reserve is a flat out masterpiece.

The Single Barrel Reserve has a light but sweet and smoky scent.  With flavors of grains, malts, and an overall sweet flavor with notes of oak and wood, vanilla, chocolate and caramel, Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve is exceptionally smooth for 120 bourbon whiskey.  With a slight bite and good warmth, the Single Barrel Reserve gets better with every sip.  We love the malts and grains here.  It’s a beautiful and classic bourbon flavor.
