Knob Creek has announced Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye Whiskey, a limited-edition whiskey that represents the brand’s boldest rye yet.
Aged nine years in Warehouse A, the oldest standing rackhouse at their distillery, Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye is bottled 119.6 proof. The whiskey is unfiltered, with big and full spicy rye flavor.
The nose is a blend of dill, spice and honey with essences of charred oak, the company says. On the palate is a blend of dill and clove, fading into sweet baking spice with slight charred oak flavor. The finish is light on the tongue, the company reports, and lingers of warm baking spices before ending with a “Kentucky Hug” to remind you of its cask strength.
Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye Whiskey will be available in early June for a limited time with an suggested retail price of $69.99 for a 750-ml. bottle. It was named “Best Rye Whiskey” at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
