Bourbon Whiskey, 'Bourbon Country', Pinhook

Pinhooking is a term used to describe the practice of buying young, thoroughbred horses, overseeing their initial development, and then re-selling them as race-ready champions-in-training. The Pinhook brand pays tribute to this practice and the parallels between investing in a horse’s potential and the promise of a young whiskey. Optimism, patience, and vision are paramount when training a horse for future victory and aging whiskey until its ready to blossom in-glass. Every year Pinhook releases a new bourbon and rye with each release representing the best expression of Pinhook’s barrels at that moment in time, blended and proofed to be as unique as the horse on the label.

Tasting Notes

Bottled in Fall 2018, this straight bourbon whiskey has over three years of barrel age and a mash bill of 75% corn, 20.5% rye, and 4.5% malted barley. A vibrant burst of ripe pear and baked apricot seamlessly give way to notes of toffee, date, and vanilla bean. A lingering and lifting finish of cinnamon, cedar, and peppercorn round out this complex and exceptionally balanced expression. 47.75% ABV.
