Knob Creek Quarter Oak Bourbon"The new release finishes flagship Knob Creek bourbon in quarter cask oak barrels for four years. Quarter casks are, as the name suggests, one quarter the size of traditional 52 gallon barrel. This means an increase in the surface area of the charred oak relative to the volume of the whiskey inside, accelerating the aging process. When the finished product is dumped from the quarter cask, it is blended with Knob Creek and bottled at 100 proof to create Knob Creek Quarter Oak.When Dad created Knob Creek in the early 90s, he wanted to bring back the big, bold flavors that bourbon offered before the days of Prohibition, said Fred Noe, Bookers son and Beam Family 7th Generation Master Distiller in a press release. Dad loved to experiment in his quest for flavor, and I like to think we carry on that same spirit today with releases like this. Finishing our full-flavored liquid in quarter casks delivers a really nice, deepened wood flavor to the bourbon our fans enjoy.The distillery tells us to look for a blend of brown sweets, char and toasted oak with hints of dried fruits on the nose, sweet, heavy oak with background notes of char, dried fruits and brown spices on the palate, and slightly sweet charred oak with a lingering dryness on the finish."This special, limited-time release uses a secondary finishing approach to continue the vision founding distiller Booker Noe set for Knob Creek decades ago: to craft bourbon with the fullest flavors characteristic of pre-prohibition style.With its latest release, Knob Creek explores and deepens the influence of oak on its flagship bourbon. Knob Creek Quarter Oak takes the brand's Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, crafted in the pre-prohibition style fans expect from Knob Creek, and finishes it for a minimum of four years in quarter cask, American oak barrels to increase the amount of contact between the whiskey and wood. A small amount of this unique, secondarily finished whiskey “ which delivers richer notes of oak “ is then mingled with Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon to create the final product that boasts a harmonious balance of oak influence and traditional, sweeter notes.
