Knob Creek Small Batch

Intro:

An unflinching balance of deep, old-style flavor with a natural oak sweetness.

Review: 

Nose - Low astringency and a good healthy charred barrel aroma on top of a mellow vanilla and cinnamon spice mixture.  It is a great smell.

Rub - A nice grain and grass aroma.  And true to the rub, there comes the nice bread smell to boot.    

Taste -  No heat to the lips, almost a sweetness introduced to the front of the tongue, introduction of the spice on the back of the tongue and then a spicy and delicious finish.  Second sip I pick up some pepper and cinnamon flavors along with whatever sweetness is hitting the front of the tongue.  A pretty damn good bottle of bourbon.  Again, for a long time, I discounted Beam as substandard.  The tides are turning my friends!  Their product line is impressing me now that I have quit being a catty child and given them an honest shake.  It's time to grow up!

Is it worth the $?

I believe I got this for $35 and it is worth that all day long!  Getting a backup bottle on the morrow.
