We are very excited to add not 1, but 2 Knob Creek Single Barrels to our Wait List Both Single Barrels are 12 years old. This is especially exciting since the regular Knob Creek bottling has recently removed the 9 year age statement from it’s label. So……
It was barreled on 6/9/2004; Aged in Warehouse W, Floor 4 Rick 50 Tier 3
The barrel sample was 134.2 proof, It will be bottles at 120 proof. I find it very typical knob creek. Strong, Robust nose. The alcohol is very well incorporated and well hidden with abundance of flavors on the tongue. Extremely long in the finish. After adding H2O, it really opens up. More subtle flavors emerge like heather and chocolate. Really delicious and hearty.
It was barreled on 10/14/2004; Aged in Warehouse L, Floor 5 Rick 20 Tier 2
The barrel sample was 133.8 proof and will be bottled at 120 proof. This bottle had a very light nose. Upon first smell, I immediately thought I like #W better. The Flavor really sets this one apart, Extremely light and delicate, the vanilla and spices really come through beautifully. You would think a light bodied whiskey could not cover up the cask strength alcohol, but you are wrong. A terrific bottle. Given this blind, I don’t think I could pick it as Knob Creek, the style is so different which is it’s only flaw.
Both barrels are on our Wait List. We expect an April arrival.

Ommegang and HBO® announce the newest beer in the Game of Thrones® collaboration series. Through its first four seasons, the critically acclaimed drama has become the biggest show on HBO.
In the world of Westeros, Valar Morghulis means “all men must die.” Fans of the hit HBO show chose the foreboding phrase as the name of the newest beer in the Game of Thrones® collaboration between HBO and Brewery Ommegang. As part of a Facebook poll, fan voting determined the style and name of the next beer. An Abbey Dubbel was selected and it is perfectly represented by the “two- headed” coin given to Arya Stark by Jaqen H’ghar, one of the “Faceless Men of Braavos” – legendary assassins with the ability to change their appearances at will.
