Flavour extension for Knob Creek bourbon

This autumn, Beam Inc's Knob Creek Kentucky bourbon is adding the brand’s first flavour innovation to its portfolio: Knob Creek Smoked Maple bourbon. Created in honour of Knob Creek bourbon founder Booker Noe, this new expression is made using the big, full flavour of Knob Creek bourbon with hints of maple and a touch of smoke.

“Knob Creek Smoked Maple bourbon is inspired by my dad’s passion for innovation,” said Fred Noe, seventh-generation Beam master distiller and 2013 Bourbon Hall of Fame Inductee. “In addition to his love for crafting and distilling quality bourbon, he also enjoyed smoking meats in the smokehouse at his home and even crafting his own maple syrup from the sugar maples on the family property in Bardstown. Smoked Maple brings these three flavours of smoke, maple and bourbon together to honour Booker’s legacy and his quest for big flavour.”

Bottled at 90-proof, the flavoured bourbon is best enjoyed neat, or with an ice cube or two. It also makes an excellent after dinner drink for those who prefer to sip and savor a nice whiskey with dessert. But in the words of Booker Noe, “drink it any damn way you please”.
