- Kentucky, United States
12,000 bottles, each clocking in at 100 proof, have been crafted of this more than 14 year old bourbon. The previously mentioned batches, in general, are said by distillery officials to have a taste with “complex oak and char notes with subtle vanilla and warm spice.” Beyond that, here is how each batch breaks down: Batch 1 Description: Higher in sweet notes, vanilla and caramel, very smooth Batch 2 Description: Higher in wood, oak notes and more astringent Batch 3 Description: Mid-way between the other two batches but favors more of the woody notesView all products by Knob CreekCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
