  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Oak, clove, heavy maple and toffee. Gingerbread, waffle cone, peanut brittle and hit of ethanol.

  • Taste:

    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.

  • Finish:

    Long, some heat. Oaky, with caramel, nutty peanut brittle and waffle cone making another reappearance.

  • Overall:

    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.
