    Yesterday there was the last sip from the bottle. The Knob Creek 9 is a very successful bourbon with the classic notes and enough alcohol. Shortly after opening, the KC9 still has a rather alcoholic note, which, however, at the latest after half of the bottle thanks to oxidation gains. In my view, with the Four Roses Single Barrel and EC12 one of the best standards. Too bad that the production of the KC9 was stopped or replaced by a NAS product. Clear purchase recommendation!

  5. Goethe scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very compelx concerning the nose. A bit sharp on the palate.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 9/10 
    • Nose
      Vanilla, bourbon, sweet burned sugar (almost some sherrynotes), pickled vegetables, maple wood, menthol in the mix with some honey, orange scale, cardamom, dried fruits.
    • Taste
      Sweet herbs in the mix with some honey, again some menthol, caramel, bourbon.
    • Finish
      Long (surprisingly). Honey, herbs, spices.

  7. p4blo scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Rough, young and cheerful. Good value.
    • Nose
      Tons of wood, acetone, slightly artificial sweetness of vanilla and sugar cane.
    • Taste
      Same as the nose, sweetness of vanilla and sugar, handful of spices and a few wooden planks freshly covered with varnish.
    • Finish
      Medium length, wood dominates here and the spices coat the mouth.

  8. Blo scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A very decent bourbon for a quite reasonable price
    • Nose
      Caramel, cinamon, dark chocolate and cloves.
    • Taste
      Powerfull, but a little alcoholic. Cinamon and clove. Hints of vanilla and grass. A bit medicinal in a way.
    • Finish
      Not extremely long, mainly on caramel and medicinal herbs notes.

  10. smaeksle did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Again a bourbon that is absolutely nothing for me. 4
    • Nose
      A decent adhesive note.
    • Taste
      Slightly sprightly, overly woody and a hint of vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long, warm and a bit bitter.
