Malt Advocate 90 points - Knob was one of the first bourbons I had when I started taking whiskey seriously, and it’s still a kicker. No-nonsense, flint-hard nose: slickly-polished oak furniture, cinnamon stick, cracked rye, wet cornmeal, hard candies. Bang! A lean whiskey that gets in your mouth and explodes with rye spice and cinnamon candy, a sharp wedge that opens you right up. The finish echoes: oak, a dying fire, clean and almost crisp. Emphatic, bright, and swift. Value Pick  (Sep 2014)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - (UB Collection,Finalist,Great Value,Tried & True Award)- The nose is distinctly floral and fruity with notes of red fruits and peaches. Powerfully spicy and woodsy in the mouth with hints of smoke, cigar box and tobacco leaf that lingers long on the palate.  (Mar 2015)

Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Smells of sweet corn, buttered popcorn and pistachio nuts in the early stages; later whiffs pick up well-endowed scents of sautéed butter, oaky vanilla, beeswax and linseed oil. Palate entry is full-bodied, sweet and honeyed; at midpalate the taste profile turns drier, more intensely grainy-mashy and breakfast cereal-like. Finishes with notes of nougat, almonds, candy bar, and oak. Best Buy. - Paul (6/1/2005) - 90-95: Superb/Highly Recommended (Jun 2005)
