Excerpt: This is one of the easiest drinking high proofers. The sweet, flavorful palate is very addicting making it very easy to put down a few of these. I tasted this with a few friends of different degrees of bourbon tasting experience and everyone couldn’t get enough.

Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve is an impressively priced entry in Beam's bourbon catalogue featuring a 9 year age statement and hefty 60% ABV bottling proof.
Honey, crisp peanut brittle, waffle cone and toffee. Decadent and inviting, with a hint of ethanol.
Thick and rich on the palate. A bit of heat, though it is to be expected with a proof like this. Fudge, caramel, a bit of waffle cone and some peanut brittle. Complex.
Long finish. A bit of ethanol once again, though not punishing. Complex, with caramel and a hint of oak notably sticking around.
