Knob Creek Rye, Coming Not So Soon.

I heard from a reader that, at a recent bourbon tasting sponsored by Beam Inc., a company rep mentioned that they are coming out with a straight rye under the Knob Creek banner. Currently, the Knob Creek line consists of two bourbons; the standard expression and a single barrel.

I have confirmed that the rumor is true, but the release is not imminent. Look for it sometime in 2012. It will be a straight rye whiskey, but no other details are available.

Sounds good to me. I love me some Rye!

I assume this will be an older bottling of the same distillate used to make Beam Rye and Old Overholt?

Probably, but maybe not. We'll see.

Hopefully it'll have more than four years on it, but I won't hold my breath.

how does these old releases coinsist with a rye shotage? its pretty anoying here in Denmark but it also feels like a way to keep prises up? btw.. have been following the blog for about 6 months now... great read:)
