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

HEALTH BENEFITS OF WHISKY
An Irish man once said, “What whisky will not cure, there is no cure for.” Of course, the world has since found out that he was quite right. Over the years, many researchers have found out that this liquid sunshine contains a plethora of health benefits. But, what has today become a drink for the affluent class was once upon a time enjoyed by the cowboys and construction workers, and was even used as an antiseptic on battlefields. What’s even more surprising is that in the 1920s, whiskey was considered as medicine and sold in pharmacies as a tonic. Intriguing, right? So, whether you like to sip on a tiny glass of Jim Beam Whiskey, or prefer to enjoy your Jack Daniel’s Whiskey on the rocks, know that every drop of this fine drink is helping your body in some way or another.
