Knob Creek Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey 70cl is hand-bottled in limited quantity for a superior taste and smoothness.
Deep in Kentucky, tiny Knob Creek spills and riffles down through the hills. Like the bourbon bearing its name, there's not much of Knob Creek but what there is rewards your finding it. Named after Abraham Lincoln's boyhood home in Kentucky, Knob Creek is truly bourbon at its finest. Created to represent whiskey before it was mass produced, Knob Creek embodies the look, feel and taste of pre-prohibition bourbon.
This full-bodied, flavourful bourbon takes classic cocktails to a new level. Knob Creek Bourbon, bottled at an honest 100 proof (50% abv) like all good bourbons were a century ago, is aged nine years in charred American white oak which lends this bourbon its maple sugar aroma, distinctive sweetness and rich, full-bodied flavour, giving it the distinction of being aged the longest of the small-batch bourbons.
This extra ageing allows it to absorb more of the sugar in the wood, giving it a slightly sweeter taste and nose.
