Not much needs to be said about Knob Creek Rye. It’s a widely available and relatively affordable rye whiskey from Jim Beam, one of the largest American whiskey distilleries also known for Basil Hayden, Baker’s, Knob Creek Bourbon, and Booker’s. Knob Creek Rye is also one of four Jim Beam rye whiskeys, including Jim Beam Rye, Knob Creek Single Barrel Rye, and Booker’s Rye (good luck finding that one though).
Full disclosure, I’ve drank a good amount of Knob Creek Rye over the years, so I already know that I like this. I haven’t had it in a few years though, so I don’t have a great recollection of what it’s like. That makes this is a great time to revisit an old friend in this Knob Creek Rye review.
