Knob Creek is a very familiar product to me, distilled at Beam in Kentucky. This is a 13 year store pick of their Single Barrel Reserve line of expressions, and is bottled at 60% ABV.
Oak, rock candy, orange peel. Toffee, peanut brittle, dark chocolate cherry cordials. Overall, rich dessert notes with a savory undertow.
Medium to thick mouth feel, impressively mild mouth feel. Cocoa, cherry cordials, honey and tobacco. Some heat makes an appearance. Lots of vanilla, a pleasant orange peel note and lots of tobacco.
Long, some heat here, but lots of rich tobacco and pepper. No real astringency. This blends well with a bold cocoa note, followed by more citrus zest and toffee.
Really impressive selection from KLWines. Some of these older casks can border on over oaked but this plays savory tobacco against a good balance of fruit notes and dessert-y toffee notes. Really enjoyable.
