Knob Creek 2001 Limited Edition Bourbon commemorates a significant year for Knob Creek, as late in 2001, the tradition and responsibility of stewarding Knob Creek Bourbon was passed from Booker to Fred – from father to son. This release, made from barrels that Booker laid down in 2001, was finished by Fred Noe in honor of all he learned from his father and stays true to the pre-prohibition standards that Booker sought to restore when he introduced Knob Creek Bourbon. Bottled at 100 Proof and aged for 14 years, longer than any other Knob Creek release to date, this bourbon has an even bigger, fuller flavor that what Knob Creek fans have come to love. It will be released in three limited batches, each accentuating distinct notes of the 14 year-old liquid. Deep golden amber. Robust oak and char notes balanced by sweet vanillas and caramels with a hint of warm brown spice. Complex oak char notes with subtle vanilla and warm spice. Batch Three: Mid-way between Batch 1 and Batch 2, slightly favoring notes of wood.
