    As long as it's unlike those, it might be good!
    Yep. It's a long shot though.

    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    Jim Beam Rye was the very first rye I tasted, but that was years ago and I have only the faintest recollection. I remember liking the taste, but finding it thin. If KC Rye is that at 100 proof, 6 years, and around $30, I'll buy a bottle. Hell, maybe a few years down the road we can get a 120 proof single barrel.

    Beam's attitude toward new product development has done a 180 in the last year, so anything is possible.

    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    I signed up for a Jim Beam bzzagent.com campaign a couple months ago and I'm still waiting for my packet. It will probably be a sample of Devil's Cut, but I would love for it to be an unreleased new product. Hey, maybe they'd make a bold choice and send me a rough draft of the KC Rye.

    I agree with Robert. Innovation is good, but they need to start hitting it out of the park.

    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    Just tasted the Knob Creek Rye an hour ago at a local tasting. Pretty good, didn't blow me away, but enjoyable. I think I'd put it neck and neck with Bulleit Rye and then Bulleit wins by a nose or 10. But that was just one tasting. You know how things change. I'd be happy to try again sometime. I wish I was more of a Rye expert and had more in my memory banks to compare it with.

    They said another 8 months or so for a real release.

    Did they say how old it is?

    She wasn't sure, but thought maybe 9 years.
