    Woodford reserve vs knob creek

    What's your preference? I figure they're duking it out in the same price range so I might ask and see what people thought.

    Re: Woodford reserve vs knob creek

    Knob Creek all the way. I'm just not a fan of WR at all and think it is way overpriced.

    Add another for Knob Creek. Check out the single barrel reserve, it steps the quality up and is worth the extra $.

    I vote Woodford. Woodford is distinctive. Knob Creek is good but is like so many other products.

    Re: Woodford reserve vs knob creek

    My preliminary vote is for KC. The last time I had WR I wasn't impressed, but that was a while ago. I'll have to give it another try. I've had KC recently and thought it was very good.

    Re: Woodford reserve vs knob creek

    Just had a bit of both, and I would have to give the slight edge to KC, but WR is decent, but depending on the bottle can seem a bit overpriced. I've had bottles of WR that have blown me away, and others than were less than "meh".

    There is such wisdom in BB's post.

    I'm not sure I would necessarily choose WF over KC if offered to me (probably a 50/50 choice), but I do know I would pick out the WF in a blind tasting. Because, as BB says, it is distinctive. That's why I love Woodford. There really is no other bourbon on the market like it. I think we sometimes get hung up on some sort of "quintessential" bourbon profile, and if something deviates from that, we tend to dismiss it. Woodford is different. That's why I think it's great. And, I hope they never change it.

    Re: Woodford reserve vs knob creek

    I had a double of WR at the Orlando airport last month and found it waxy and thin. Also, it had a synthetic taste to it that I couldn't warm up to. As it sat in the glass it got quite a bit better, but I'm not going to buy it again.

    I like KC but probably won't be getting it anytime soon, either. Too easy to drink!
