This is a straggling bottle from my previous Knob Creek Rodeo. I bought two of this particular pick when prepping for the series, and now, almost a full year later, I finally cracked into it, shared it with some friends, and finished it off, taking notes all the way. I wonder how much this experience will differ from the bottle right after it was released.
Oak, clove, heavy maple and toffee. Gingerbread, waffle cone, peanut brittle and hit of ethanol.
Thick, rich mouth feel, with lots of honey. Theres some heat here, but its not punishing for the proof. Honey roasted peanuts, oak, caramel, and graham cracker. Some marshmallow. Really interesting.
Long, some heat. Oaky, with caramel, nutty peanut brittle and waffle cone making another reappearance.
Really enjoyable bottle, and I'm glad it remained so. I remember really enjoying the maple, waffle cone and brittle notes before, and was glad to find them again. I have bought a lot less of these in recent days because I covered so many in such a short period of time, but I still am of the mind that these bottlings are one of the best, if not THE best, value in bourbon.
