Weekend Sip: A behemoth of a bourbon from Knob Creek

The bottle: Knob Creek 25th Anniversary Bourbon, $130

The back story: These days, Americans think nothing of forking over big bucks for a top-shelf bourbon, be it one from Kentucky (where the spirit has a rich history) or even an upstart crafted in Brooklyn. But when Knob Creek first came out a quarter-century ago, it was considered a novelty because of its boutique status — and its higher-than-the-norm price tag.

So, what has changed? In short, the bourbon boom. America’s signature spirit has become hot with a new generation of drinkers (yes, the millennials), who think nothing of spending $50 or more for a craft version.
