Knob Creek Small Batch 2001 Limited Edition Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Jim Beam Distillery
750 ML (Standard)
Vanilla and honey also predominate on the palate, but again, they're well-balanced by more ripe fruit and some warm baking spice.Toasted oak is a little more noticeable on the palate, along with a just a hint of something savory and salty, almost like parmesan cheese.
Sweet flavors like vanilla, honey, and caramel predominate up front.The sweetness is far from overbearing, fruit ripe peach and plum.
Smooth but mouth coating, and wood lingers on the long finish.
This limited edition release of Knob Creek represents Fred Noe officially taking over as the patriarch of one of Jim Beam's most familiar small batch brands following the passing of his father, Booker Noe, in 2004.Three batches of this limited release were produced from barrels of Whiskey filled by Booker himself in 2001, and finished by Fred in honor of his father's teachings and legacy.These bottles were released in 2016 after aging for 14 years and each batch is said to be strikingly different from the others.
