Knob Creek has unveiled its newest release: Knob Creek Twice Barreled Rye.
This expression is the brand’s signature straight rye whiskey, secondarily finished in new, charred American oak barrels.
Bottled at 100 proof, Knob Creek Twice Barreled Rye has similar flavors as the brand’s traditional rye, amplified by oak and warm spice notes with a touch of sweetness from the secondary barreling process, the company says.
Aromas include oak with notes of brown sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and rye spice. The flavors are sweet with notes of toasted wood and warm baking spices. The finish is lingering oak and spice.
“Rye whiskey is more popular than ever, and I’m proud Knob Creek plays a role in that,” says Fred Noe, Beam Family seventh-generation master distiller. “I’ve enjoyed experimenting with unique ways to amplify our classic rye whiskey to give whiskey fans something new and exciting.”
Knob Creek Twice Barreled Rye is now available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $44.99 for a 750-ml. bottle.The post Knob Creek Launches Twice Barreled Rye first appeared on Beverage Dynamics.
