The pleasantness of the nose carries over to the palate. Rich oak builds a base, and is layered with green peppercorns, dabs of well balanced sweet vanilla, and lightly toasted caramel. It presents a lighter mouthfeel which is suiting to the overall lightness of the flavors present. Much like the no age statement (NAS) small batch, the flavors present are good and easily enjoyable, but they leave you wishing for them to be just a bit bolde.
The finish is all business: aged oak, vanilla, and leather jump out front and are followed by a dash of black pepper and rye spice. A lingering oak and warming spice help to round things out. It's a simple, yet enjoyable way to end, and helps cap off the sip nicely.
A benchmark in bourbon. Patiently-aged in white oak barrels for nine years, and bottles at 100 proof.
Knob Creek Small Batch Bourbon is one of four bourbons that comprise Jim Beam’s Small Batch Bourbon Collection. The others are Basil Hayden’s, Baker’s Bourbon, and Booker’s Bourbon. Beam states that they “age every batch in maximum-char barrels to pull every bit of natural sweetness from the oak.” From its initial release in 1992, up to late 2016, Knob Creek carried a 9 year age statement. In 2016, Beam removed the age statement saying that they could not guarantee all barrels would be aged to 9 years due to inventory issues. In 2020, the 9 year age statement once again returned to the small batch bottle.
