    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    I have never had ri(1) but have had Old Overholt (did not like it). Still looking forward to trying the new KC Rye. Heck at least it's 100 proof. I love Bulleit but it would be nice if it was bottled at 100 proof.

    Re: Knob Creek Rye

    By the way, although the word 'straight' doesn't appear on the label, the note from Fred Noe that accompanied the sample refers to it as a straight rye and there is no reason to imagine that it would not be. It tastes very well aged. This isn't the first time a company has decided not to bother with the word 'straight,' assuming correctly that most people don't know what it means anyway.

    Similarly, Fred has told me that regular Knob is, in fact, BIB but they don't choose to put it on the label because most people don't know what it means. I suspect that's true of the rye as well.

    I've now tried it. It's certainly a "straight," just not labeled as such.

    And it tastes just like a Beam Rye.

    I'm sitting here sipping on Knob Creek Rye and am enjoying it. Definitely a bit lighter on the palate than I like, but still good. I haven't had the ri, so I can't compare, but it should be another solid rye offering once it hits the market. I have to say that I still prefer Rittenhouse, especially at Rittenhouse's ridiculously low price point.

    I'm not sure I would say RR is ridiculously low in price. I enjoyed it much better when it was $13.

    It's not available locally, but the person I trade with for it gets it for $14, so it's still ridiculously low priced in his area.

    For what it's worth, Mark Gillespie in his latest Whiskey Cast rated KC Rye a 93.

    Interesting that he said it is a mix of 4 and 9 year old ryes. I wonder if they are going to maintain that sort of a profile going forward.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
