Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye, 59.8%

Price: $70 Issue: Fall 2018 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Dripping with caramel and tingling with spice, this is a blockbuster whiskey that delivers across a spectrum of flavors. Maple syrup, sugar in the raw, and caramel-drizzled flan highlight the aroma, while the palate turns fruity and tropical with the sweet drive of peach nectar, grilled fruits, and pineapple upside-down cake. At the same time, it's lemony bright, warmly spiced, tremendously rich, and oh-so-good! Pour on the water and enjoy the ride!
