Inaugural Straight Rye Whiskey made with the bourbon-lover in mind. Very approachable, round, smooth and balanced sweetness. Hand-selected barrels and blending is what separates Pinhook from other rye. Aromas of maple-covered pecans, fresh apples and cinnamon stick give way to a deep and rich palate of brown sugar, vanilla bean, fresh-cracked pepper, raisins and dried apricot. Beautiful round balance between grain, fruit, spice and alcohol that showcases dark fruit, which is unusual for a rye in the 2-3 year range. On the finish caramel and toffee notes from the wood are prevalent without overwhelming the other complements. Pinhook's Bourbon N Rye will make a rye drinker out of you yet! This rye is incredibly smooth and tastes fantastic neat!
