Knob Creek Single Barrel Village Liquor Pick
This barrel pick has an interesting story to say the least. Of the 3 samples we were given, one was clearly the best choice on paper. Barrel A was aged 14 years while Barrel B and C were both 10 year.
We benchmarked all 3 against the standard Single Barrel and each other. Barrel A (14yr) was very oak forward both on the nose and palate. While it was quite delicious, in the end the oak was too strong and it did not beat out the rest. Barrel B had some slightly off putting metallic notes on the nose and grassy/vegetable notes on the palate. It did not beat out the standard Single Barrel, much less our pick. Barrel C was absolutely wonderful. Its balance and complexity made it a dream. It was the best example of a Kentucky Straight Bourbon we have tried in a long time. A beautifully sweet nose full of vanilla, honey, maple and medium oak. A palate perfectly balanced between sweetness, oak and spice. Vanilla, cereal, medium oak, strong tannins, warm spices. Second sip: maple, dried stone fruits, honey, cloves and a satisfyingly long finish: this is a bourbon lovers bourbon.
At the end of the day, we had to go with what tasted the best.. even if it wasn’t aged the longest.
