The quarter cask barrels, increase the amount of contact between the whiskey and wood, and is said to have created a final product that boasts a harmonious balance of oak influence and traditional, sweeter notes. 

Commenting on the launch, Fred Noe, Beam Family 7th Generation Master Distiller, said: "When Dad created Knob Creek in the early 90s, he wanted to bring back the big, bold flavours that bourbon offered before the days of Prohibition. Dad loved to experiment in his quest for flavour, and I like to think we carry on that same spirit today with releases like this. Finishing our full-flavored liquid in quarter casks delivers a really nice, deepened wood flavour to the bourbon our fans enjoy."

Knob Creek Quarter Cask, is now available across the US from specialist retailers, for a RRP of $49.99 – 750ml.
