Drinkin' Lincoln

You'll find the boyhood home of Abraham Lincoln at Knob Creek. Knob Creek is handcrafted in limited quantities using time-honored recipes, aged a full nine years. The family moved to the property in 1811, attracted by the fertile land. Daring to set new standards, Knob Creek dared to look entirely different. The 230-acre farm featured a creek running through rich bottomland bordered by steep hills that resembled knobs. In an 1860 letter Lincoln stated, “Drink it with Lincoln ... and get your hands off my Knob”.

Hot on the tongue and lips, it's not as hot as you would expect for its proof. You get oak, caramel, no cherry, not much charcoal, crisp and it's not too complex. And then …. more oak. The finish is powerful and a little quick. This is quality, and it's fine neat. You don't need to dress it up.
