Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

    complaint a big one!

    i am very disappointed to buy a bottle, and to discover that the cork is now in plastic. I couldn't believe it. what is that, now ? you have a perfect product, 9 years old, and you try to save money with the cork ! sorry but it's not in equivalence with the product, completely fault, I am used to buy this product in america, and I can't closed my mouth and just let go, it's a pity,, for me you get no point on this matter.

    Hot damn

    Best bourbon in its price range. Spicy, punchy, but absolutely delicious. you can taste the 100 proof and 50%, but with ice is perfect. I read through their website as I was enjoying a glass just now, and its a great story to match a great bourbon. And hey, if its good enough for Hank Schrader it is good enough for me!

    whiskey noob

    I know nothing of bourbons or any other sort of whiskey. Came across this while browsing the liquor section at a local shop and bought it. Home, and I'm ready to try it out. It's excellent on its own (neat), or with some ice. Found a recipe online for Old Fashioned and made that, it's still pretty damn good. I would recommend Knob Creek to non-whiskey drinkers, it does the job really well.

    How to drink this?

    I see some bad reviews for this whiskey. For the price, I love it, but I paid 19.98! I just wonder how to drink it? At 100 proof, it seems a little stiff to be a sipping bourbon. How do people drink this? I gotta put a bunch of ice in it.

    You can find a better bourbon for the price

    Knob Creek 9 year old was rated very high on one site I looked at and I decided to pick up a bottle. The aroma of spice and cigar boxes is my favorite of all the bourbon's I have tried so far. The taste however was a big let down. The higher alcohol percentage brings on a lot of spice and it hits pretty hard. The finish was lackluster and I found it to leave a bitter aftertaste. I gave this bourbon a chance, but the more I had it the more I picked up on a strong flavor of alcohol. I wont be buying Knob Creek ever again.

    Grew On Me

    Seemed like a very good bourbon the first bottle I received as a gift, but not memorable. Later, received another bottle and found my appreciation grew. Bought the third and fourth. Presently my favorite, by far. Strong flavor with complex character, many interesting changes between the attention getting beginning and the most satisfying finish ever.

    Not sure why so many people seem to like this

    While the bourbon is obviously quality, the taste just isn't there for me. It has a harsh mouth feel, a strong burn, and no overtones other than from the "burnt barrel".

    I've tried it with neat, with a little water, on the rocks and nothing helps. I like lots of different whiskies (Scotch and Bourbon) but I'd rank this one as equal to or less than regular old Jack Daniels (Black) or Jim Beam and definitely not worth the extra price. A real disappointment. I wish you could get your money back on whiskey.

    Purchased a bottle of this in honor of my 27th birthday. This was supposed to be my birthday drink. Upon first encounter with nose, very disgusting. Nothing special. I threw the remaining 3/4ths dowwn the sink and enjoyed something crappy that turned out better than this!

    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.

    very good

    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.

    Just delicious - a great introduction to American whiskey

    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!

    My Dad loved this

    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

    All rounder

    Great all rounder bourbon. Great nose, thick taste and a smooth finish. Only the slightest bite despite the 50%ABV. Highly recommended.

    Dear Master of Malt

    Please get rid of that stupid whisky or whiskey? thing on the side of the page.

    6th March 2013


    Knob creek has just a great nose, like any solid bourbon. Sweet and rich dream dram... Let it sit. Drink it slow. Think Kentucky chew.

    By the way, if anyone from Master of Malt is seeing this, I must bring something urgent and alarming to your attention, and I will email you later as well: it looks to me like there is a possibility that Bookers bourbon is not available on this website. not that I'm knocking Knob Creek, which is absolutely fabulous, but if you r in Europe and you have not tried bookers bourbon get it as soon as possible and definitely get it if you come to the States. It is a high percentage barrel strength bourbon aged 6-8 years that is buttery and maple sweet.

    best bourbon I've tried

    I haven't cared much for the bourbons I've tried--except for this one. It's smooth, but the flavor didn't set in at first for me. Later, the effect of the rye kicked in and added a pleasant, spicy after taste. This has been one of the more enjoyable whiskeys I've tried so far. Karl

    For special days

    Big, sweet and lots of muscle. Easy to drink with real character. Top shelf stuff!

    9th September 2012


    very good taste.. try it!

    knob creek 9 yr old

    for the price very nice true to it roots. sweet with nice rye balance. Of course there are better but for the price, you can not go wrong.

    2nd March 2012

    Not too Sweet

    Just the way I like it.

    18th January 2012

    Very Good

    I like this big bourbon. A lot going on. I would like it even more if the oak was toned down slightly.

    17th December 2011


    As posted above, this is also my favorit bourbon. A truly smooth, sweet, and full bourbon, this is my all-time go-to.

    30th March 2011


    Really is my favourite bourbon. Rich, smooth, and the vanilla finish is absolutely sublime. I'll stick with this for years to come.
