Booker Noe, the founder of Knob Creek, said that everything is better with bourbon. He was a wise man. In honor of him, the company is set to release an experimental new bottle of bourbon for you to enjoy. Knob Creek Smoked Maple takes some classic Knob Creek bourbon and adds flavors of sweet, rich maple syrup and hints of smokiness to the finish. The idea is to pay homage to some of the interests of the company’s founder, he both cured meats in a smokehouse and was interested in crafting maple syrup as well. The 90 proof bourbon will get a nationwide release this month so keep your eyes on the shelves.
