So im not much of a bourbon guy. I generally stick with single malts. But I've had the urge to branch out and try more American whiskey. I figured Knob Creek 9 would be a good place to start my rebirth since it is pretty mainstream and people seem to enjoy it. And Hank from Breaking Bad seems to favor it. Good marketing JB. I'm drinking it neat.
Nose: Sharply alcohol forward at first. Also caramel, chocolate, fudge and after time banana bread.
Palate: Alcohol backs off (thankfully). Starts really sweet with more caramel. Also brown sugar, cinnamon, and then a rush of tingly chili spices on the tongue. I really enjoy the spice, it really sets this apart from most single malts.
Finish: Medium, hot finish. After the spices die down the banana bread returns to round things off.
Overall: I still would say i'm a single malt guy. But this was enjoyable and in my 45-50% preffered abv range (although i seem to enjoy stronger whisky more and more). I look forward to continue branching out. JB says this is 50% corn. What do you guys speculate makes up the remaining recipe?
