Excerpt: It’s refreshing to drink a whiskey that’s positioned as a limited edition that tastes good but otherwise doesn’t have any inherently special qualities or will break the bank, though everyone’s threshold is different.

This is a cask strength rye released under the Knob Creek label by Beam/Suntory. This comes from Warehouse A and is bottled at 59.8% ABV. I worked through a bottle of this, but was dumb enough to not take a bottle kill picture.
Toffee, clove, pepper, rye spice. Nice sweetness. Some musty oak. Little bit of light spearmint, but very little. Could be a little green vegetation.
Medium mouth feel. Honey, toffee, caramel. Waffles and syrup. Rye spice. Lots of clove, pepper and tobacco. Mild heat, but not punishing despite being almost 60% ABV.
Long, a bit more heat here, but lots of pepper, cloves, tobacco and some real robust oak.
