Pinhook Bourbon True Small Batch Selected by r/bourbon & Seelbach's
Source: Castle & Key Distilling
Blend: Three Barrels
Tasting Notes: Brown sugar, light nuttiness and caramel at first on the nose. A surprising amount of oak thanks to one of the anchor barrels holding a lot of tannin and baking spice. Sweet cream, vanilla bean, light pepper, orange peel and a long sweet finish. Castle & Key's stocks are drinking nicely at 4 years, and this blend capitalizes most heavily on their baking spice / caramel character, while bringing in light floral character and bold oak notes.
Additional Info: The first ever private blend coming out of Pinhook for r/bourbon leveraging their Castle & Key stocks, released at cask strength. Bottling at true barrel proof. A panel of 12 people took part in blending barrels for an entire day at Saxony farm.
