Knob Creek Rye Bottling Note

It's here! Knob Creek's Rye Whiskey is finally here! Unveiled in the US in 2012, Knob Creek Rye has made its way to our fair shores, bringing with it a flavour profile that strikes a wonderful balance between your classic, spicy rye whiskeys and your sweeter, vanilla-fuelled high-rye-content bourbons.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Rich caramel, bright ginger and lingering menthol hints, with more herbaceous touches developing with the robust rye notes. A good core of oak spice, too.

Palate: Traditional rye spiciness, rich and mouth-coating, but not as overpowering as some other rye whiskey. Instead, there's more development of the vanilla, brown sugar and soft butter notes.

Finish: Drying oak, white pepper and rye spice last on the finish.

Knob Creek Rye Reviews

Nothing special

Vanilla and a bit of spice. Easy drinking but nothing special.

Great whiskey experience value

Don't drink this. It's terrible. Leave more for me... thinking pikesville next, just need a doable alternative rye that people seem to like.

The best rye whiskey under 50$

It is an underestimated whiskey. Sweet, with hints of caramel and chocolate, it is easy to drink more than you should. For me to appreciate neat. I do not want to stay without anymore.

Overlooked. Better than Rittenhouse BIB and cheaper than Pikesville (thanks Marussia for the price hike on that one) and Michters (Woodford?) BP rye. Worth a punt!

Good stuff

I don't know any specifics, but I know this has a very rich rye flavor. That coupled with a low price makes this my go-to for an Old Fashioned.

We have super Rye Whiskey's at 1/2 the price Alberta Springs 10 year old $25 C

$37 Canuck looks worthy of a purchase(discounted) Not that we don't have enough Rye based whisky's in Canada to buy at 25% the Canuck buck

The Bourbon-lover's Rye

As good as you'd expect from Knob Creek. From what I've learned through Beam/Suntory, the mash bill is 55% rye, 35% corn, 10% malt. The final bottling is blended from spirit aged in new charred oak for five to nine years, and is bottled at 50% ABV. Plenty of wood and spice, and some rich toffee notes to round out what's really a full-flavor whiskey. At 100 proof, there's no shortage of fierce alcohol heat, either. It's a brilliant rye, but to my palate, has some distinct influences from its famous Bourbon cousin.

Knob Creeks Mashbill

For you guys wondering about the grain percentage.
Regular Knob Creek is 73% Corn, 13% Rye, the rest barley. This is extremely rye heavy so my guess is 73% rye, probably even more

To The Person Who Inquired About Percentage Of Rye Grain...

This supposedly contains only the legal minimum 51% rye grain, but it tastes more rye-heavy than that, doesn't it?

Great Value

This what American whiskey used to taste like before prohibition according to the makers Jim Beam. Full flavoured and very complex with the spiciness ruling the middle and finish. Just one question for Master of Malt. What is the exact mash bill for this whiskey? Specifically how much % Rye, please??

30th November 2015

One of my absolute favorites

Just a phenomenal, inviting rye.

A Superb Rye

Starts out a little overwhelming with the spiciness and too dry (when the bottle is first opened), but oxygen mellows and sweetens this rye in a couple of days. Never quite as easy-drinking as Rittenhouse, but arguably more complex and substantial.
