Knob Creek Bourbon Bottling Note

Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is an utter classic small batch bourbon from Jim Beam, first created by Booker Noe and introduced in 1992. It was named after the creek which flows near where Abraham Lincoln grew up.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Quite spicy and sweet. Melted salty butter on granary toast, toasty oak and a touch of rye with caramel sweetness.

Palate: Peppy and full. Notes of candy floss and nut oil, a touch of spice and dark chocolate, a little spice and charred oak.

Finish: Long with a touch of dryness, nut oils and vanilla spice.

Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Reviews

Classic Bourbon

The best bourbon I have tried and I have tried many, intense flavour with all the notes I enjoy in a good bourbon, I admit I tried this a few years ago and didn't get the hype, after sampling many lessor bourbons in the interim I finally appreciate this master class in bourbon distilling.

Knob creek was the perfect name

Beautiful drink. Drank my way thru the bottle over a long Saturday and some how ended in a gentlemans club. Paid for a private dance and things started getting frisky with the dancer. Some how ended up dicking her down, stupid bint could of mentioned she had kids. She was looser than a prozzy on yay. But alls good cause she will be havin another kid now an no way im paying child support.

Good but misleading

Good price but double it for delivery

Intense and deep flavour, sweet but not overpoweringly so.
A great Bourbon!

Excellent. For mature tastes only.

I'm in my late seventies, and I have tried more bourbons than most. Knob is a truly great sipping whiskey. I laughed when I read some of the bad reviews. I'm sure most of those are from kids still trying to catch their breath. Sip it, boys. Sip it. Nice flavor. Smooth and silky.

I have drank Jack and Jim most my life until a friend had me try knob. Best bourbon I have have had

14th October 2019


That's exactly what I said and felt on my first sip: Wow!
I was also surprised to find that this was 50%, but that explains the nice finish it has going on. The flavour is well rounded and it's not rushed nothing overpowering, it's a well organised dance.
My only problem with it is that it doesn't get more and more complex the more you drink it, so you need to sip it at a slower pace to really enjoy everything it has to offer, but since it's 50% that might not be an entirely bad thing either.
Definitely a must-have; sure it's not super refined or stunningly complex but for the price it's just perfect to have at hand for those days you feel like having one. If you like Eagle Rare you'll probably like this one as well since they are two sides of the same coin; tastes a bit similar yet complement each other.

1.75 liter go for it

Good enough for me. Purchase the King sized 1.75 .Worth it just for the incredible nose of the bottle. This is true bourbon.

Price and taste worth

Shalom whiskey lovers,
Second time I drink this KNOB creek Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey!
Wonderful great taste, smooth, leaning I precious taste to remember.
Good on you.
God bless from the Israeli Negev desert.

Ok enough but generic low end

I don’t Get the hype around this bourbon. Buffalo trace is a much better bourbon at a cheaper price. At this price I would buy Woodford reserve or even the over priced gentleman jack instead. I’m glad I had it but I wouldn’t buy again unless I see it at £25 or less (I paid £33)

9th March 2019

Love It!

Wonderful rich, complex, smoky taste. Alcohol burn drops off quickly, not too sweet, nice hint of oak aftertaste.

15th January 2019

Hey, man !

You, the new things (no age, etc.) do not boast of me!

6th January 2019

9 years better. Taste different.

I had the 9 year before and it's great. The one without 9 year taste like any generic bourbon. I return the bottle immediately after a shot.

14th August 2018

I Like It!

Even at 100 proof, this is very good bourbon.:-)

5th August 2018

Woohoo. Brace yourself or the oak will tear you apart.

This is review of NAS, I never tasted the legendary 9yo.
This is an oak essence. Spicy, very spicy. But in a good way. The nose is quite heavy-sweet, then on a palate you get this oily, corn bourbon concentrate. And then the slap in the face with oaky spiciness. Not unpleasant to me but quite pronounced so you've been warned. Long finish and you want more straight away.
It's a quality bourbon but it will only cater for fans of spicy whiskeys.

Great value

4-1/2 stars. Some of these reviews may well be from bitter competition. lol

24th April 2018

Harsh, high alcohol content bourbon -- pretty good, not great

A step up from Beam and Jack Daniels, and down from Woodford, Trace, etc. What I DO like about it is the 100 proof; this is an excellent bourbon when you want to get a serious buzz on. The taste is slightly bitter and kinda harsh, but not necessarily in a bad way. There are much smoother bourbons out there if that's what you want, and Woodford, at a similar price point, would be a good example. I do sometimes buy Knob even though Woodford sits right next to it at my local store, because sometimes you just want a strong, harsh bourbon. As a sipping, after dinner type bourbon it would not be my first choice. I don't think Knob has the complex flavors one expects in a decent bourbon - it's basically for getting a buzz, or getting drunk, without enduring the horrible taste of Beam or JD

Shocked at reviews and that the 9 Year is not even on the bottle anymore, for 2 years no less

These reviews may all be for the current bottling which is sans the 9 year age statement. I just learned that the 9 went away 2 years ago or so. Startled and upset to know this. I have always loved this whiskey. If this NAS is anywhere near as good as the old school age statement general release, well then, let me tell you how to try this. Pour a small dram, nip at if if you like, but mostly let it open glass decant for a couple hours. The gentlemen start your engines fire will calm down and so much beaituful sweetness will shine through.

Kentucky's average Bourbon

It has flavor well known to a low end bourbon. Not anything to get excited about

16th December 2017

If I like it !! You know it's good!

Knob creek whiskey was given to me as a gift, I don't know why I haven't picked this awesome Kentucky Bourbon whiskey up myself , I liked it!! I enjoy a glass when sitting around the campfire or watching the hockey game go Leafs go or ball game go Jay's go!! Now I give Knob Creek Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey s gifts,

A good cheap boubon

good stuff for a cheap whiskey. Is it the best ever, no way. but if your looking to have a few freinds over and relax. Maybe get drunk too, then i recomend. though depending on the store, this stuff can be over priced, so be carefull

6th November 2017

It's ok ... but they're better out there!

It's not bad... but not great. It's definitely better than Jim beams own name whiskey and Jack Daniels to me is just like paint stripper, but when you consider that knob creak is in the same price bracket as Woodford reserve, I'm afraid knob creak then becomes a very under achieving bourbon. Woodford reserve is a far superior bourbon and is my go-to when I want a sweeter sipper compared to my regular single malts. If you have £30-35 to spend, then I recommend Woodford reserve over knob creak. It's not bad... but not great for the price.

26th October 2017

will never drink any knob creek product again.

knob creek is by far my least favorite of all whiskies. in my opinion tastes very bland and seems like they didn't take pride in the whiskey making process which explains why they sell so many of these bottles with tacky artificial flavors added to make things even worse. i think any other bottle would do the job. don't drink this trash.

16th October 2017

Sweeter on the nose and taste - Excellent

I can't understand the 1/2 star review below, weird and clearly not a accurate representation of what this new NAS is.

The 9yr has been a favorite and staple in my cabinet for as long as I can remember. When the change happened I did a blind taste of both and while a very different taste, this NAS is excellent. You feel the alcohol a lot less and the sweetness shines through quite a bit more. Much easier to drink and I actually preferred it that night. I was disappointed when Black Label went from 8yr to 6yr with a noticeable drop in taste but this is a winner. A different taste, but a good one nonetheless.

23rd July 2017

Still the same knob creek without the 9year label

Great for sipping, has a bit of harshness but spices kick in and it goes down nicely.

8th June 2017

Overpowering alcohol burn

I'm relatively new to Bourbon. Got a bottle of Jim Beam white label on sale and was surprised how much I liked it. Finished that off and thought I'd bump it up and try this Knob Creek straight bourbon. Hoo wah. I guess I'm not ready for this 100 proof fire starter. I had a hard time getting the flavors because the alcohol was so overpowering. I think I'll stick with 80 proof so I can actually savor the flavor.

13th February 2017

Switched to NAS

This has been a standard in my whisk(e)y cabinet for well over a decade. Unfortunately, I purchased the new NAS version and it is dreadful. It no longer has the flavor profile and long finish. I miss the 9yo age statement Knob Creek.

21st November 2016


I'm not a bourbon fan. I haven't tasted much more than 20 different bourbons. I must say, it beats the hell out of jack or beam. But what isn't..

7th November 2016

It's a winner

I came back to try this again after finding out it won the 2015 World Spirit Awards Best Small Batch Bourbon 6-10 years in a blind tasting, beating a lot more expensive bourbons - to the surprise even of the judges. And it's good. Not blow your socks off good - not for me at least - but punches way above it's price band for sure. Rich, intense, surprising spice, I wouldn't normally add water to bourbon but I took the other reviewer's advice and a tiny drop does open it up massively, creating a lovely buttery mouth feel.

3rd August 2015

Great sipping bourbon

Knob Creek is a treat. There. I've said it. I found this nugget on the shelf of our local store, and bought it on a whim due to its rather ambiguous name. I thought it would be a one-note bourbon like other whimsically named whiskies, but man, oh man was I ever mistaken. Knob Creek bourbon is a great sipping whisky. Add a small splash of water or feel adventurous and add a couple of dashes of bitters for some zing. I must admit that their rye version is perhaps half a point better, but it is a close tie.
