Matured wholly in air-dried, hand-selected ex-bourbon casks, the 'unashamedly excellent' Old Pulteney 12-years-old is the definitive expression in the Old Pulteney family.
Knob Creek Single Barrel Bourbon
Straight from one carefully hand-selected barrel to your bottle, Knob creek single barrel reserve encounters no detours or distractions. It's just the big, pure flavor that Booker Noe set out to create over two decades ago. Most bourbon is blended together from multiple barrels to create a consistent taste. However, each barrel of single barrel reserve is bottled individually to become one-of-a-kind. Each batch we handpick will have slight variations in taste, color and aroma based on its final age, rack placement and other proprietary methods passed down for eight generations. Best yet, it's bottled at a 120 proof, so it's an even bigger expression of our signature flavor. You’ll find more pronounced flavors and a smokier aroma. And although it packs a high proof, the finish is still smooth and complex. This is best enjoyed for the first time in stages. Pour a finger and sip it neat. Then open it up with a drop of water or a filtered ice cube
