Knob Creek Just Launched It’s Oldest Bourbon Yet

Knob Creek 18 Year Old Bourbon

Knob Creek has unveiled a new, limited-edition bourbon, Knob Creek 18 Year Old. This latest release marks the oldest expression from the whiskey maker to-date, and comes just in time to celebrate the brand’s 30th anniversary.

Aged twice as long as its flagship bourbon and bottled at 100 proof, Knob Creek 18 Year Old offers a complex, yet balanced, liquid. Extensive aging in Kentucky rackhouses give this bourbon its rich copper color and flavor profile, which delivers notes of caramelized oak and sweet vanilla with a warm finish.

On the nose, the whiskey offers brown sugar and aged oak, alongside aromas of char and caramel. The palate delivers caramelized oak and hints of sweet vanilla and baking spices. The warm finish features spice and slight floral and fruit notes

Three decades ago, Booker Noe, grandson of Jim Beam and Sixth Generation Master Distiller, set out to define the standards for pre-prohibition style bourbon by introducing Knob Creek to the world. Today, Knob Creek continues to honor his legacy by pushing the boundaries of the bourbon category, and this new, extra-aged and full-flavored liquid reinforces the brand’s ongoing dedication and commitment to exceptional craftsmanship.

“As we celebrate 30 years of Knob Creek, it’s clear to me that Dad was ahead of his time in creating innovative expressions with big, bold flavors that defined pre-prohibition whiskey,” said Fred Noe, Booker Noe’s son and Seventh Generation Master Distiller. “This new 18 Year Old liquid is a nod to his vision and commitment to quality and craftsmanship, and I know this is a whiskey he’d be proud to serve. I’m honored to further his legacy with Knob Creek’s oldest and boldest expression yet.”

Bottled at 50% ABV, Knob Creek 18 Year Old is now available nationwide in limited quantities and is priced $169.99 per 750mL bottle. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
