From the Whiskey Wash: "Jim Beam first introduced Knob Creek in 1992. The brand is known for its “big bold” Prohibition-style flavor. According to their website, the end of Prohibition caused a rush of younger whiskeys to be pushed to market giving Americans a taste for so-called softer whiskeys. But Booker Noe (famous for loving bourbon’s big, bold flavor) wanted to bring back that earlier style, and so the Knob Creek label was introduced under his tenure as Beam’s master distiller.
This summer, Knob Creek is releasing its 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Bourbon, an unfiltered cask-strength single barrel whiskey. This release was originally produced back in 2004, and is slated to be a 12-13 year old offering. For comparison, that was the same year that George W. Bush was re-elected president, Martha Stewart went to jail, Janet Jackson had her infamous wardrobe malfunction, and Napoleon Dynamite stormed the box office.
But don’t be fooled. While the age of a whiskey is important, so is the selection of barrels for the vatting. There’s no foolproof formula, and distillers need to rely on their senses rather than a set of rigid rules. Lucky for us, the folks at Jim Beam have impeccable taste."
