Rye Whiskey, 'Rye Humor', 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

‘Rye Humor’ marks Pinhook’s second edition of straight rye whiskey, released in 2018. The traditional mash bill rye (95% rye/5% malted barley) has over 3 years of barrel age and was blended and proofed by Sean Josephs at Castle & Key Distillery in Frankfort, KY. A perfumed nose of elderflower and preserved lemon leads to a palate of dried papaya and caramel. Toasted vanilla, candied black licorice, and honey balance this powerful yet elegant rye. 48.5% ABV
