#6 on the is is Knob Creek, one of four ‘small batch’ bourbons put out by Beam Suntory (often referred to, and still by us, as Jim Beam). Since this is our first bourbon of the series, we discuss what makes a bourbon a bourbon – as well as age statements (which Knob Creek as of this past fall now lacks) and what it means to be ‘small batch’.
Chris and I failed to mention on this podcast how when Chris first encountered Knob Creek it was a bit too intense for his liking. Time has passed, and palates change/develop – much as Crown Royal surprised as more enjoyable than we would have thought -Knob Creek has become a bourbon staple for our bars, and many others. We encourage you to grab a glass, pour a dram, and join us.
