    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    Good news if it's 9 years old and high proof and I hope sincerely it isn't flavored.

    You would remember that. I think I blocked it out.

    It sounds like the relative failure of R1 might turn out to be a blessing: just leave it in the barrel longer and release it at higher proof, too.

    Come on, let it be 9 years and 100 proof: that's the Knob Creek way.

    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    Does Beam have only 1 rye mashbill (Are JB rye and Overholt the same)??? Is this basically going to be what Overholt BIB should be like???? I'm getting thirsty already!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    I like KC quite a bit, and as mentioned before it is widely available in restaraunts, bars, and grocery stores. It's branding has obviously been successful, so I think this would be a rye that is probably a little easier to find than WT's. I also think Chuck's comments make a lot of sense that this label could be used to redirect the r1 that is currently aging that would likely be in glut status before too long.

    If they put out a high-proof, age-statement Rye, good for them, but I won't be holding me breath as far as Beam Global is concerned.

    Maybe the new Rye will be part of the "Small Batch Collection." So small that they're in every friggin' bar in America.

    Hopefully it doesn't taste at all like Jim Beam Rye, Old Overcoat or R1...

    As long as it's unlike those, it might be good!
