Rye Humor Straight Rye Whiskey 750ml
Limited to a blend of only 65 barrels, this Rye Humor Cask Strength release is the first edition of barrel proof straight rye whiskey from Pinhook. Every fall Pinhook features an annual vintage of Pinhook Bourbon and Pinhook Rye, each of which is inspired by a thoroughbred horse. Each blend is as unique as the horse on the label. “Pinhooking” refers to an old Kentucky term for purchasing young thoroughbreds, holding them until they mature, and selling them when they are ready to run. Successful pinhooks – much like whiskey - are made on instinct, experience, an appreciation of quality, and a little luck. Pinhook bourbons and ryes are handcrafted to reflect the richness of the Kentucky soil and the character of its beautiful horse country. Limited to a blend of only 65 barrels, this Rye Humor Cask Strength release is the first edition of barrel proof straight rye whiskey from Pinhook. Blended by Sean Josephs at Castle & Key Distillery in Frankfort, KY the average age of the barrels is around 4 years old. You can expect deep and dense aromas of dark chocolate, candied black licorice, and vanilla extract, followed by robust flavors of raisins, tobacco, cinnamon stick, and sarsaparilla.

About the brand
The first bourbon in half a century to be distilled, aged and bottled at the legendary Old Taylor Distillery (now Castle & Key) and Pinhook’s inaugural bourbon crafted from its custom Kentucky distillate. This limited expression of 100 barrels, aged more than 34 months, was blended and proofed by Sean Josephs, Pinhook’s Co-Founder and Master Taster. Each year, Pinhook releases a new vintage of bourbons and ryes. Every expression is the best representation of our barrels at that moment in time, and dedicated to a promising young thoroughbred. Through a combination of careful barrel selection, blending in small batches, and meticulous proofing, each Pinhook vintage has a personality as unique as the horse on the label.

Through a combination of careful barrel selection, blending in small batches, and meticulous proofing, each Pinhook vintage has a personality as unique as the horse on the label. Breaking with the standard approach to American whiskey, where barrels are blended to replicate an established flavor profile at a fixed proof every time, Pinhook sees each set of barrels as a new crop, shaped by the natural variations in the ingredients and the elements. Working in small batches, we craft each vintage to express the best whiskey rather than the same whiskey, and set the proof to optimize the attributes of that year’s crop.

Ill start by saying my container is the 2019 barrel quality rye humor 115 ABV. 95/5 MGP rye blend. The container looks equivalent to imagined yet might be distinctive as all of Pinhooks bottles appear to be identical to me. OK now for what is in the jug. Ill start by saying this was shockingly sweeter than I suspected it would consider the proof and that its a rye bourbon. Smooth being in citations since I figure the vast majority would state thats not a decent descriptor to utilize but rather I figure most bourbon consumers will comprehend. The flavors helped me to remember dickel rye however I didnt have a container convenient to attempt one next to the other yet since this is utilizing the standard MGP rye charge squash I envision Im not very far away. For what its worth I love the dickel rye. The cost was somewhat more than I like spending at nearly $50 after assessment however to go overboard every so often for something I attempted before purchasing and furthermore loved Im content with my buy. I attempted this at home along 3 different ryes an evening or two ago (Wild Buck HW Twofold Rye and Templeton 4) and this was second best as I would see it behind the Twofold Rye which is a large portion of the cost. I wager this would be an astounding good old so Ill try different things with that next time I haul it out. Decision yes this was a decent rye yet it reproduces a jug a large portion of the value (Dickel) yet in addition has an a lot higher verification. So in the event that you like Dickel rye however need somewhat more chomp at that point this might be right up your alley.

Like a slick full-enhanced super hot. Great rye to be so youthful (3 years). The container I attempted was a solitary barrel.

Home grown nose of white pine pine cones trace of vanilla and caramel. Mouthfeel full and thick. Sense of taste sweet and fruity on assault yet punchy and fiery like a rye ought to be. Completions like a light IPA. Waits long with a moderate and low consume slight KY embrace. Simple sipper. Doesn't frustrate.
