Knob Creek 25th Anniversary Single Barrel Bourbon

Just because Knob Creek isn’t one of the most rare whiskey brands in the world, it doesn’t mean they don’t make killer spirits. In fact, they’re one of our widely-available favorites. And, wouldn’t you know it, they’re celebrating 25 years with the release of this 25th Anniversary Single Barrel Bourbon.

25 years ago, master distiller Booker Noe started a small batch movement with the first release of Knob Creek. Now, in the hands of his son, Fred, the brand is still pumping out swoon-worthy spirits. This particular one is special for being limited edition, unfiltered, and cask strength (their first ever). Also, it was aged between 12 and 13 years and has a proof of 120-125 – a symptom of the nuanced differences from barrel to barrel. Regardless of the variation, each bottle is filled to the brim with a spirit boasting a robust nose of caramel and vanilla, sweet and nutty flavors, and a long and full finish. Each of these bottles comes in a unique wooden display box and retails for $130.
