    Knob Creek Rye

    Beam is planning a Knob Creek Rye, to be out sometime in 2012. No other details are available.

    Maybe it will be as good as Ri1.

    It occurred to me that perhaps it's a way to sell the whiskey they set aside but haven't sold as ri1, which I don't think has done all that well. Certainly if it's older and higher proof than ri1, that will be a good thing.

    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    As "no other details are available", this is the perfect time to start the conjecture merry-go-round! Let me start.
    1) Are they dumping the previous plans to offer Ri2 and Ri3 etc.?
    2) Does this mean, that Knob Creek is the brand name they want to build line extension with? (See Knob Creek Special Reserve)
    3) Probably, a minimum 100 proofer, and with a fair amount of age on it?
    4) Priced in upper $30 low $40 range?

    I'm looking forward to it. I like rye. But, I'll love it if it hits me in the nose and make my eyes water.

    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    It certainly does look like Knob Creek is a winner for Beam.
    It's in most bars I go to and this new KC Rye sounds like another winner without knowing the details.

    Couldn't they charge more for it if they called it Booker's Rye instead?

    You hush!

    Seriously, though, if it follows the KC blueprint (100 pf, age stated) I think it would be great. I suppose 9 years is too much to ask, but shoot, anything 6 or over would be pretty nice.

    Is it cherry flavored rye?

    Nope, it's Knob Creek Honey Reseve Rye with a dash of Cherry

    In all seriousness..... outstanding news! Can't wait. Here's hoping it's out by May so I can pick some up in Hawaii
