    As if I'm to believe that the method of bottling and the availability are going to make it taste different/better

    And as if I believe I won't see this on every whiskey shelf in every liquor store in every town

    $40 for a 7-9(ish) year old 100 proof rye with CORN in it? I will definitely pick up a bottle.

    There is a Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve Rye on the Whiskey List for Chicago WhiskyFest, poured only during the VIP hour. I'll be sure to hit it up and see if I can get any more info from them, and I'm sure I won't be the only one!

    Nothing changes the fact this is still a JB product... given how Old Overcoat, JB Rye and especially Ri(1) have TASTED, I don't have high hopes for this.

    I'll certainly try it - no doubt about it - but my expectations are terribly low for this to actually be good (or even any better than the other JB Rye products). My guess is it's just going to be a mid-shelf mixer that will be on every bar across the country, but nothing you'd want to sip on neat.

    All that said, I do appreciate the 100 proof. Who knows, that could push it over the edge to being a pleasant experience.

    I have yet to see an age statement. The COLA label doesn't have one unless you consider "patiently aged" to be an age statement. https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...11277001000242

    Also interesting that the label refers to it as "rye whiskey" not "straight rye whiskey." From what I can tell the only difference would be that straight rye has to be at least 2 years old. (It's not used cooperage because that would be "whiskey distilled from rye mash".) I assume that it will be over 2 years old, so why not label it as Straight Rye?

    So here we have a NAS rye that's going to sell for more than it's 9 y/o bourbon cousin. Thanks Beam you've always been a little overpriced, but age statements are one of the few things you had going for you.

    At least it looks like it will be cheaper (and of course higher proof) than (ri)1 but I'm curious if there will be any other appreciable differences.

    "Hand bottled" is kind of interesting, because regular Knob is not. Only automated wax dipper I've ever seen.

    Does "hand bottled" have a real meaning? I'm envisioning someone with a funnel and ladle scooping it from a vat.

    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    I'm pretty sure they'd have to hand bottle it, how else would they be able to get the (ri)1 out of the tall bottles into the new short bottles?






    /yes I know they're not the same proof.
