The nose is quite spicy and sweet. There are notes of melted salty butter on granary toast, there are notes of toasty oak and a touch of rye with caramel sweetness. The palate is quite peppy and full. There are notes of candy floss and nut oil, a touch of spice and dark chocolate, a little spice and charred oak. The finish is long with a touch of dryness, there are notes of nut oils and vanilla spice.
Just delicious - a great introduction to American whiskey
Still my go-to whiskye (intended)
While I love some of the scots and ires for their flavuors and complexity, I keep coming back to this one for its simplicity. Yes I'm obviously American (formerly), but to be noted I can't stand most typical American varieties and my only other 10/10 on this site is the Laphroaig QC which is completely different. This one stands out with its caramel goodness with a perfectly balanced kick of heat. The single-barrel reserve takes it up a notch even farther if you can find it.

It is fairly light in color, golden and welcoming.The nose has a strong alcohol presence; there are sugary notes, strong oak presence and spice.
the oak notes blend nicely with the scent of vanilla and caramel. Light scent of old oak and must. The taste comes off sugary at first but quickly makes it’s spicy, oaky notes known. Butter and oak come through with a sugary sweet taste that feels dry and lingers through the finish - BeerandWhiskeyHQ

I was given a bottle as a gift and it's fantastic, best bourbon I've had so far. Struggling to find somewhere to buy it at a good price.

Knob Creek is the first whiskey I ever tasted - snuck some from Dad's liquor cabinet when I was sixteen. So, it holds a special place in my heart. Like the state of Kentucky where it's from, it's got a little bit of everything: sweet, savory, toasty, nutty, spicy, it's all there. It really sings at the back of your throat as it goes down, and I like to gradually add water as I drink it, to open up different layers of flavor. A lovely nightcap and a great bargain too!

Bought this for my dad for Father's day after the name drew a chuckle or two from my little sister a while back. It arrived at 7:30 the day after I had ordered it which was fantastic. It is a very impressive bourbon and my dad was thoroughly impressed. No chuckling while he was drinking it but at 50% ABV it did have him chuckling once he'd finished :) Recommended
