9 Years Old, Cask Strength

Knob Creek to Release One of the Most Anticipated Whiskeys of the Year


June 4, 2018 Home By

Before it even made it to market, Knob Creek’s to-be-released rye took home one of the biggest awards in spirits – Best Rye Whiskey at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

The limited-run rye is set for a summer release, and has three very, very notable attributes: it’s cask strength, it’s aged 9 years and it’s not that expensive ($70 SRP). All these combined make it even more unique. Seldom are rye whiskeys released at cask strength or with 9-year age marks (rye whiskey’s sudden spike in popularity has made sure of that), making the usually pricey $70 tag a bit more palatable.

Knob Creek has not yet released an official availability date or a number of bottles available.
