Proof66 Notes

The Knot is a spirit that blends a proprietary recipe of spices with Irish whiskey. There's some confusion out there about whether this is a whiskey or a liqueur. We deem it a whiskey-based liqueur much like Drambuie though the proof is 20pts stronger.

The print ads are great, claiming for example that the best drink is "one part The Knot and one part shot glass." That's a bold ad!

The Knot label is owned by William Grant & Sons... at this time, we don't know who actually produces the spirit.

damn fine irish whiskey. I found it by accident and liked it so much I shared it with four others and we all rate it great. it is sweet, and strong and I find it difficult to find it here in Ohio. If you are not Irish or Scots don't drink it... there is only so much to go around and it shouldn't be wasted on the likes of you!

A Denver bartender turned me on to this whiskey liqueur, just in time for St. Patrick's Day 2012!  Hard whiskey is nice, but this is a lovely flavor for a change of pace - fans of Drambuie may like its vanilla notes.  The ad on the website is cool & quirky, and seems to market it as a "manly" hard liquor best enjoyed neat in a shot, but it is definitely a liqueur.  I like mine on the rocks, and it was delicious that way.  Enjoy!
