In 2020, Jim Beam released Knob Creek 12 Year Bourbon, a brand new bourbon to the Knob Creek lineup of ryes and bourbons. It's a welcome addition of a double-digit age-stated bourbon at around the same time that Knob Creek Small Batch finally got back its 9 year old age statement and retailers were picking single barrels that were 14+ years old.

At face value, there’s a lot to like about Knob Creek 12 Year. First off, a double-digit age statement whiskey from a major Kentucky distillery is a good thing. It sort of hints that age-statements are making a come back, as it’s one of the few 12+ year old bourbons for under $100.

On the nose- dark, rich and creamy with dense caramel, vanilla, cherry, baked apple chips, cinnamon, chocolate, roasted oak, clove, licorice, and tobacco

Knob Creek 12 Year has very sweet caramel, vanilla, baked apple chips, cinnamon, chocolate, roasted, oak, clove, and a hint of nuttiness at the back end. All that flavorful caramel, vanilla, and chocolate actually catch me a little off-guard because this doesn’t really taste like any other Jim Beam / Knob Creek bourbon.

The finish has a nice sweetness and oakiness – caramel, roasted oak, dark chocolate, vanilla, dried orange and apple, and licorice.
