  • Intro:

    This is a private barrel selection of Knob Creek distillate from Beam / Suntory in Kentucky. It was sent to me blind, and I drank it live in the Whiskey Network Discord and tried to guess the reveal. I have filled in all of the info here post reveal for convenience before posting.

  • Nose:

    Brown sugar, honey, tobacco, faint fruitiness, cherry and cocoa.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, some heat. Oaky pepper, tobacco, lots of rich cocoa.

  • Finish:

    Long, hot but cocoa forward. Pepper and a whole lot of cherry and oak.

  • Overall:

    Overall: Good but hot. Theres a nice balance between sweetness and the dry oak. Im guessing this is a bourbon around 10-12 years old at 60% ABV - 65% ABV. The cherry note makes me think this is potentially a new batch of ECBP that I havent tried yet. Thats my guess here.
