Whisky Reviews for Knob Creek Rye
15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.61 points
- lacks a bit of complexity to me.
- Uncomplicated, simple rye. Perfect to mix.
- Room temperature when drinking: 18 ℃
Viewing Eyes: Orange Gold
Smell Nose: Preserved fruits, dark fruits, black currant jam, dried plum, sour taste of hawthorn peel, fermented sour taste, dry-to-fried wheat grains, compound wooden spices. Underneath is a toasted caramel shell, maple sugar muffins, brown sugar buns, and fresh cream double. The smell is fuller and the aroma is strong.
Taste Palate: the front is cinnamon, turmeric powder, coriander and other spices, floral sachet. Moderate spiciness in the middle, creamy plum, sweet dried fruit, nut shells, salt-baked wood
Finish: Long and rich, steamed red dates, cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg, tonka bean and other compound spices
Body of the wine: light, full of oil and fat, weak firmness
Nose: 83.8 / 100
Palate: 83.5 / 100
Overall: 83.6 / 100
Overall: the sense of layering is a little bit, but the outline is still blurry
- Spicy Rye .... you can drink, but you do not have to. Granted, I'm spoiled by non-comparable bottlings.
- Neat this is both quaffable and good, but I can imagine this being God’s gift to bartenders. Even I feel the urge to get to work with this on a nice cocktail.
Sweet nose on loads of vanilla, but upholstered with flowers on the hand hand, and nail polish remover on the other. Quite creamy and soft though. Toffee kicks in with a vengeance.
The spices arrive first on the palate (black pepper, cloves and a truckload of cinnamon), followed by caramel, honey and toffee. Somewhat drying on menthol.
That continues in the medium long finish: menthol and spices. This fades gently to leave the mouth dry.
