It’s fair to say that I’m guilty of buying more than my share of the “latest release” bourbons, without knowing exactly what I’m getting myself into. None may hold truer than my personal fascination with Jim Beam’s Knob Creek line of bourbons. From the 2001, to the 25th Anniversary, to the Quarter Oak, to one of now many Rye releases, to even the now dozens of single barrels that have hit our region, I find myself constantly grabbing the latest that Knob Creek has to offer. Why? Well, I’ve yet to find much disappointment in the line, although I can say that the pricing of some of the earlier limited editions have left something to be desired.
