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.
Brown sugar, honey, tobacco, faint fruitiness, cherry and cocoa.
Medium mouthfeel, some heat. Oaky pepper, tobacco, lots of rich cocoa.
Long, hot but cocoa forward. Pepper and a whole lot of cherry and oak.
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.
