Colour: Shades of gold to light amber. Taste: Bold rye spiciness with undertones of vanilla and oak. Aroma: Expansive notes of herbs and rye with nuances of oak. Finish: Warm and smooth with spice throughout. Knob Creek Rye is still made in small batches, patiently aged in the deepest charred barrels and bottled at a full 100 proof to maintain Knob Creeks approach to big flavour. This extra aging allows it to absorb more of the sugar in the wood, giving it a slightly sweeter taste and nose. The highest quality rye is used to give you that unique spicy, smooth flavour that changes your cocktails forever.
