Tasting Notes

Ever wonder what was behind the grimace in those classic movies, whenever some tough guy takes a swig of whiskey? Bottled at 100 proof like all great pre-Prohibition bourbons and named after the childhood home of Abe Lincoln, this bourbon is warm, spicy, nutty, and satisfying. "A bourbon of reckoning."

Staff Pick Notes

When I lived in New Orleans, I loved to be a tourist in my own town. A stroll down river through the edge of the French Quarter catching wafts of fresh beignets, roasted pecans & creamy pralines was an amusing treat. Putting my nose in this glass of Knob Creek 9 year instantly took me down memory lane, or North Peters Street as it were. On the palate, the slight sweetness is countered by time spent in barrel, an undertone of allspice and a pleasing warmth from the ABV. There’s a more earthy and nutty element here as well. In this case age makes all the difference, mellowing out the exuberance displayed in younger bourbons. I’d happily pair this with a backyard fire & s’mores in Midcity or an evening on a Dumaine balcony overlooking a courtyard, y'heard me.
