Knob Creek Rye PlumpJack Barrel Selection
The whiskey pours a beautiful autumn chestnut color into the glass. The nose immediately strikes you as bold and assertive with a balance between sweet and savory flavors that entice you for more. The first initial sip brings forth a trio of spice, floral and oaky flavors that linger and dry on the finish. After a little aeration in the glass, the heat of the alcohol begins to mellow and the more floral aromas from the rye grain begin to show their skin. Honey, heather, caramel and tobacco leaf emanates from the glass. This would pair perfect with hearty fall dishes like beef shank, or pork chops with glazed apples, though Jim Beams former Master Distiller Booker Noe probably would have prepared it simply over a full glass of ice in Collins glass. - Joshua Thinnes
