Knob Creek Rye Whiskey gives you a first taste of the new Knob Creek Rye whiskey. Jim Beam tells us Knob Creek Rye be available in select markets starting in March 2012 and released nationally in July 2012 at a suggested retail price of $35.99 for a 750ml bottle.

Here is our review of this new rye, bottled under the Knob Creek name. It delivers some new, bold rye flavors unlike other ryes which are on the market. At the same time, it has detectable, signature Beam whiskey notes.

    Good afternoon Bourbon Blog.

    The new Knob Creek Reserve sounds very drinkable, when will it be available in the U.K. ???
    We dont get to many bourbon’s or rye’s in the the U.K. mores the pity, its good to have a change from single malts and some of the better blended scotch. Thanks for your e-mails.

    Best Wishes.
