Self-professed Bourbon enthusiasts might scoff at the idea of a flavored newcomer entering the line-up of a tried & true premium brand; however, a judgmental attitude about the Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon  will leave you missing out. Born out of Booker Noe’s nostalgia for the smokehouse and the sugar maples on the family property, Knob Creek makes its first foray into flavored bourbon.  A hint of maple and subdued smokiness effortlessly turns “bourbon, neat” into a chic, seasonal cocktail.  90 proof.
