During our last trip to Kentucky, we selected a large swatch of Bourbon barrels from Knob Creek that have been released over the last six months. However, we’ve been holding these two rye whiskey casks back in anticipation of America’s birthday. What better way to celebrate American whiskey culture than with two unique, high-proof single barrel rye whiskies that capture the essence of what whiskey is all about!
Each barrel is named after the floor of the rick house that it was matured on, along with the dominant characteristic of the whiskey itself. Both barrels were aged high in the Kentucky rick house, ensuring a rich flavor and high-power proof.
Brimming with poached apricots and a hint of Bing cherry, this round and supple rye whiskey combines the ripeness of a fruit orchard with the spiciness and ample baking spices that come from a rye whiskey mash bill. Loaded with punch at 115 proof, this Knob Creek single barrel captures the fruitiness and freshness reminiscent of the old Maryland rye whiskey style.
