Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye

92 Excellent

A well-rounded and full-bodied Kentucky Rye Whiskey, Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye is well worth the price.

Golden-Brown

Nose

Vanilla, slight caramel, leather, dark cocoa, orange and lemon zest, candied orange and citrus.

The nose carries through. Lots of vanilla and sweet notes on the front palate fading to spicy pepper and citrus on the mid palate, with slight oak and black pepper on the rear of the tongue.

Finish

Medium in length, barrel tannins and rye spice carry through.
