  1. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Today a Knob Creek for tasting in the glass. The whiskey was bottled at a decent 50% vol. When it was nine years old.
    All in all a nice bourbon with slight weaknesses, but the price is absolutely within the framework for uncomplicated enjoyment.
    • Nose
      86 86
      When you first smell it, a very fruity bourbon note, sandalwood, vanilla, cotton candy, but also slightly sour notes; Apricots, peaches, white cherries. Some hay.
      The alcohol is easily noticeable but well integrated and does not have a disturbing effect. Overall, a pleasant first impression with this bourbon.
    • Taste
      84 84
      First a strong bourbon note, light oiliness and sweetness, followed by fresh mint and spice. Ginger, some cinnamon, cloves. Dark chocolate and dried apricots complete the taste.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Knob Creek says goodbye with a medium finish. Fruity and sweet but also with a perceptible sharpness and bitter note.

    Iam not a fan of this bourbon. Too harsh for my taste. I like Woodford better.

  4. Candy62 scored this whisky 80 points Member Senior

    This whiskey is young, wild and raw. Hard to believe it's 9 long years old.
    Nose: molasses, ripe sherries, vinegar, strawberries, white grapes
    Palate: grapes, dark sugars, sherry, raisins, winegum, spices
    Finish: light body, spices, short warming finish
    Good for cocktails!
