Knob Creek Small Batch Straight Rye Whiskey
Shades of gold to light amber. Bold rye spiciness with undertones of vanilla and oak. Expansive notes of herbs and rye with nuances of oak. Warm and smooth with spice throughout. Kentucky straight bourbon has always been our specialty, but apparently now, Kentucky Straight Rye is too.
Shortly before Prohibition bourbon reached an all-time level of quality but in January of 1919, the eighteenth amendment was passed and took the boom out of bourbon growth. Fourteen years later, many distilleries were unable to restart production. The ones that did were financially forced to age their whiskey for shorter periods of time or to resourcefully blend their different whiskies. As a result, Americans developed a taste for softer whiskies, rather than the long-aged, big-flavored straight bourbons of the past.
