Pinhook Rye Vertical Series True Single Barrel - Selected by Seelbach's
Mash Bill: 95/5 Rye/Malted Barley
Proof: 106.2 proof
Tasting Notes: This rye starts out with crystallized ginger. It moves into mint and peppery spice. There's a note of vanilla and honey. It continues to hold a great balance of high spice from taste to finish. There's enough sweetness to backup the heat and spice. This is a great example of 95/5 rye.
Every year, Pinhook releases a new bourbon and rye, each connected to a promising young thoroughbred. The whiskey in each release is the best expression of our barrels at that moment in time, and we blend and proof releases to be as unique as the horse on the label. The Vertical Series is a one-time opportunity to follow a group of barrels, all filled within months of each other, as they age.
Every year over the next 9 years, Pinhook will select 150 bourbon barrels and 50 rye barrels to be blended and proofed creating the most balanced expression for the vintage. Join us on the journey beginning with our inaugural 4-Year-old bourbon and collect and enjoy the Vertical Series in annual releases from age 4 to age 12. The Rye Vertical Series will begin in the spring of 2020.
