Knob Creek Rye
We select the highest-quality rye to create the World’s Best Rye 2016 IWSC. (2016 International Wine and Spirits Competition Best Rye Worldwide Whiskey)
Nose - Incredible...terrific aroma with no offensive characteristics. Truly amazing for 100 proof. Not sure what other notes I can identify other than rye and a very subtle vanilla.
Rub - Pleasant mixture of yeast and oak.
Taste - A light heat to the lips and tip of the tongue. A smooth cinnamon flavor once held on the tongue. Easy finish with a light warming of the throat. Vanilla appears on the 2nd and 3rd sips. The nose beats the taste, but overall the taste is pretty decent too.
Is it worth the $?
I got this for $34 and it is well worth it.
