  • Intro:

    This is a 15yr selection of a Knob Creek single barrel by Beam for Gallenstein, a fairly well known retailer. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Honey, toffee, cherry pie and cinnamon roll. Decadent and sweet, minimal oak on the nose, playing second fiddle to the fruity dessert notes.

  • Taste:

    Sweet but powerful. Lots of oak, ethanol and cocoa. This one is a bruiser. Cherry pie, toffee and peanut brittle are the main partygoers, with some bitter tannins and some cocoa.

  • Finish:

    Long, but still very hot. Reese’s peanut butter cup, cherry cordial and bitter oak.

  • Overall:

    Super interesting and bonkers delicious pick but the oak is a bit heavy handed and the heat is just not as well behaved as it should be for this age. It’s very good, but it’s inconsistencies stop it from ending up where I think it had the potential to.
