Great whiskey and good value
Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon /50% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Kentucky, United States
Knob Creek Bourbon has some good blood. Not only is it named after the boyhood home of Abraham Lincoln, it has some highly acclaimed brothers in the Jim Beam family: Booker's, Basil Hayden's and Baker's. Aged nine years, Knob Creek is the oldest by a couple years. The extra aging draws more flavor and sugar from the wood, providing a full-bodied, fruity flavor with hints of grass and grain. It's 100-proof, which is considered the honest age of bourbons made a century ago. The Beam family makes this spirit with extra char on white oak barrels for a bigger flavor. Knob Creek Bourbon is comfortable on the top shelf of any home bar. You should put it right up there with the best names from Tennessee, Ireland, Canada or Scotland. It's a great dessert after a grilled steak and is at home with a cigar next to your ash tray. How does it mix? Its bold, organic flavor stands up well in cocktails if you must mix it. Fresh mint and a hint of sugar make a fine Julep. It makes a nice old fashioned with orange, bitters and a cherry. The family suggests you try a new fashioned. Instead of sugar, use Amaretto as a sweetener. Mix that with bitters and an orange peel. Serve it up or on the rocks. Whatever you do, taste it with a little extra patience. It spent nine long years getting to you. Don't rush it. Buy Knob Creek Bourbon Whiskey online at a great price on Drizly and have it delivered directly to your door or pick it up in store.

I love knob creek. it's my favorite bourbon. however, i have a knob creek 1.75 pourer and the new bottles do not fit in it. i wish they would go back to the old bottle or come out with a pourer that fits the new bottle.

This was the first time I actually tried knob creek and I must say it is exceptional.
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.

Knob Creek Old Fashioned
The original Old Fashioned is said to have just whiskey, water, sugar and bitters. This recipe for an old fashioned is a little more fun. Muddle sweet cherry with aromatic orange before adding in a rich orange liqueur and handcrafted bourbon. Then, sit back, kick up your feet and sip on this classic before dinner starts.
