Review #1150 – Knob Creek Twice Barreled Rye

Review #1150 | Bourbon Review # 572 – Knob Creek Twice Barreled Rye

The Schtick: This is a Knob Creek rye rebarreled in #4 charred barrels. 

Distiller: Beam

Bottler: Beam

Selection: N/A

ABV: 50% ABV

Age: NAS 

Nose: Honey, spice, peanuts, floral and fresh. Pepper, vanilla, fresh baked bread. 

Taste: Thin mouth feel. No heat. Sweet caramel, musty cardboard, honey and confectioners sugar. Grassy and floral. Faint oak presence.

Finish: Dry, oaky and musty. Reminds me more of a craft finish than anything. Sweet honey, grassy musty and gross. 

Overall: More like a young craft rye than something notable from Beam. Dissappointing, to say the least. 

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 3
