Whisky Reviews for Knob Creek Rye
18 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.79 points
- A sample courtesy of karloff.
- Not too sure about this one.
The ABV of 50% saves some flaws of an otherwise rather flat performance.
Sweet vanilla, very sweet.
Also some artificial fruity sweetness to it, almost a "fake" sherry cream note.
A little charred wood in a dry cardboard box that's been closed for a long time.
Not unpleasant, but not very inviting either.
Thick creamy mouthfeel.
Bitter burnt liqorice.
Something artificial about the sweetness on the taste too.
Spicy, ice coffe with a topping of cream that's on the verge of going sour, sprinkled with some cinnamon, and it last quite long.
- This is not a complex whiskey by any stretch. I have tasted a lot better than this and a lot worse. The bourbon version is far superior.
Thick syrup, vanilla and popcorn, Bounty coconut chocolate bar and even the cardboard bit you get with it. Light tobacco and dark pudding with custard.
Plenty of spices on the palate but not as sweet as other Ryes I have had. Black coffee with a little bit of bitterness. The high percentage does make it quite thick and chewy but the more you drink the smoother and lighter it feels.
It has quite a long finish to it with red apple and cinnamon.

On the nose: marshmallow, artificial grape flavoring, bourbon corn, and cream soda snow cone flavoring. Pretty interesting!
On the palate: smooth, straightforward, grainy, grassy, clean, rye, with a brewed tea finish.
- My first Rey, very spicy and aromatic with clear hints of a Bourbon - 19.11.2016
Beautiful sweetness, milk chocolate, vanilla, honey, solvents, pungent alcohol, herbs and dry spices in the background, forest floor
Spicy-hot, prickles on the tip of the tongue, voluminous, fills the entire mouth, herbs and spices, oily, creamy, oak
- A Rye who knows how to differentiate himself from his colleagues with a lot of complexity
typical ami, quite a lot of fruit: fermented strawberry, seasoning and not too dominant, Rye is here, cooling alcohol, second nose fir needles, anise, Christmas
Instant spice, sweetness holds back, great flavors of oak and Rye
strong spiciness, which is more complex than comparable Ryes, alcohol brings strength, Christmas tastes stay behind
- A light, yet vanilla-laden, dry and with a good load of rye spices. Not too complex and you don't taste the 50% ABC either - feels more like 40. A bit too dry for me personally but that#s more due to the style and mashbill.
