750ml, bottle

Knob Creek Twice Barreled Rye is a rye whiskey that undergoes a unique double-barreling process. This results in a bolder flavor profile with extra layers of spice, sweetness, and oak compared to standard rye whiskey. It's bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV) and offers a good balance between rye spice and sweeter notes.



Rye Spice: The signature rye spiciness is present upfront, offering a peppery tingle and a hint of herbal earthiness.

Sweet Notes: Caramel and vanilla sweetness balance the rye spice, creating a pleasant aroma reminiscent of baked goods like cupcakes or vanilla frosting. Some reviewers also detect hints of brown sugar or even toasted marshmallow.

Oak Influence: The double barreling adds a noticeable oak presence, with hints of cinnamon, baking spices, and a touch of char. Depending on your sensitivity, you might also pick up a subtle ethanol note adding a slight warmth to the aroma.

Fruity Touches: Some tasters report hints of dried fruit like apricot or cherry, adding a touch of complexity to the nose.


Sweetness Upfront: The initial taste often leans sweet, with flavors of caramel, peanut butter fudge (a signature Jim Beam note), and brown sugar.

Rye Spice: The rye spice reappears on the palate, offering a peppery kick that builds alongside the sweetness. Some reviewers find notes of cinnamon, clove, or white pepper adding further complexity.

Oak: The oak influence from the double barrel becomes more prominent on the palate, offering notes of vanilla, char, and a drying tannic sensation. This adds structure and depth to the flavor profile.

Balance: Despite the emphasis on sweetness, Knob Creek Twice Barreled Rye strives for balance. The rye spice and oak tannins help to temper the sweetness, creating a more well-rounded experience.


Lingering Notes: The finish tends to be long and lingering, with a combination of rye spice, oak char, and a hint of sweetness. The sweetness may fade slightly, allowing the rye spice and oak to take center stage.

Overall Impression: The finish should leave you with a satisfying warmth and a lasting impression of the unique flavor profile created by the double barreling process.
