Knob Creek Limited Edition Twice Barreled Rye Whiskey starts out as Knob Creek’s Best-in-Class Rye Whiskey.

Before being transferred to a new, level 4 charred oak barrel for additional aging. This transforms the into a powerful spirit with enhanced oaky aromas. The whiskey’s re-exposure to the flavorful, smoky fresh barrel char results in the pinnacle of harmony.

Between spicy rye and oak from the secondary barrel-finish. Ever since the U.S. launch of its straight rye whiskey in 2012, Knob Creek has become perhaps as known for rye as it has bourbon.

Knob Creek Straight Rye Whiskey has since garnered notable awards and accolades. With a cask strength edition released earlier in 2018. The latter nabbed an award from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition receiving the honor prior to its official release for public sale.

As recently reported, the latest special edition rye from this American whiskey brand is the newly released, limited edition Knob Creek Twice Barreled Rye, which aims to transform its straight rye whiskey through a round of barrel finishing in new, charred American oak barrels.

NOSE:

Oak, rye grain, and baked oats are at the forefront. Lingering behind are hay, muted vanilla, and sweet sugar scents. A layer of ethanol is present bringing a noticeable overlay of heat to the nose. The effect allows the nose to be nicely balanced, though slightly hot for the proof.

Palate:

Rye spice, vanilla, and smoky oak quickly appear with white pepper and light anise hiding in the background. The double barrel effect is in full play in the palate as a noticeable underlying level of sweetness is present.

Finish:

The sweet sugars carry through to the finish and combine with a low simmering heat that is present throughout. Sweet vanilla and oak kick things off and quickly fade to a drier leathery oak combo that lingers for a while. It’s not your traditional rye finish, but in line with the rest of the sip, albeit delivering a slightly weaker experience than the nose and palate.
