About Knobel Whiskeys
Knobel Tennessee Whiskey
Each bottle of Knobel Tennessee Whiskey is made using the finest ingredients from local farmers in Tennessee.
The whiskey is charcoal-filtered immediately after distilling, commonly known as the Lincoln County Process, and aged for approximately five years in hand-toasted, new American oak barrels.
This carefully handcrafted process results in what is described as a rich, honey-colored whiskey with sweet caramel and spicy orange aromas with hints of vanilla, almond, and oak.
Warm flavors of sugar cookies, ginger, and fall spices fill the palate, leaving a long, sweet, and spicy finish reminiscent of apple pie.
Bottled at 45% Alc./Vol. / 90 Proof. A 750ml bottle of Knobel Tennessee Whiskey is priced at $64.99.
Knobel Rickhouse Edition
Mike Rowe has also released a limited edition version of his Tennessee Whiskey, the Knobel Rickhouse Edition. This expression is made from Knobel Straight Tennessee Whiskey aged in American oak barrels and finished with French oak staves to produce a unique sip.
The Rickhouse Edition is bottled at 47.5% Alc./Vol. / 95 Proof and has a complex and smooth profile of warm spices that opens with sweet notes of meringue, marmalade, orange rind, and caramel.
The taste plays nicely against the spice of the French oak and the vanilla coming from the American white oak. The flavor said to be reminiscent of fall baking spices, custardy, and fall desserts with apple pie.
It finishes with a hint of lingering cloves and cinnamon on top of banana bread and panna cotta dessert.
A 750ml bottle of Knobel Rickhouse Edition is priced at $67.95
