Knob Creek Rye Whiskey

Once again I came to visit the Winthrop Arms Hotel, Winthrop, Massachusetts, on Boston’s North Shore. This restaurant and hotel is an old-fashioned gem worth visiting. Has a turn of the century charm, beautiful restaurant and bar, and nice hotel rooms within walking distance of the water.

Wow, this Knob Creek Rye was a good choice. Has a beautiful golden color. 100 proof. From James B. Beam Distilling. Aged in white oak barrels. No age statement. I haven’t tried it yet, but other reviewers note that this may be very similar to the more expensive rī¹ (rye one) ,also from Jim Beam. Easy, warm, a little pepper in the front. The rye flavor strongly hits in the back palate. Not much of a burn. Very smooth.
