On the nose, deep vanilla and burnt caramels are present with a faint citrus zing to taper off. The palate is immediately filled with toasted oak, mild spice of pepper with a dash of cinnamon and Homemade Cherry Cola from an Old Fashioned Drug Store during the 80’s to round the taste out. On the finish, dashes of butterscotch, vanilla and cherry syrup embark on a journey of nostalgia as if you’ve sampled Peerless Bourbon before... This is truly a unique bourbon. Side note: This drinks well below it’s proof and above it’s age.
Additional notes: Pour an ounce or two over vanilla bean ice cream, it will change your life. Cheers!
Agree with others. Good, but not $130 good....even if it ages longer. Glad I tried the 200ml and would definitely buy more if it were $75 or under. There are many more options that are cheaper that are just as good or better. i.e. Willet 4yr Family Estate Rye
I might be to blame for the experience I had with Peerless, but I recognized the name if not the pedigree at a local soak and ordered in a classic rye cocktail - Old Fashioned. It was cloyingly sweet, so much so that I second guess my bartender and ordered a different dram and easy on the simple after that. Smoothness is absolutely on point but I couldn't appreciate any of the character or complexity, so I guess I'll have to shell out for a bottle!
Excellent. Have tried on one occasion. I'll have to try over a few separate occasions to compare to other Rye whiskies to compare taste with cost, but overall taste is very nice. Not sure it's worth the $120-130 premium cost, but I'll let you know.
this was a gift to my doctor for the surgery he did on my. he's a great guy and volunteers his work from the university hospital to the VA . we are so grateful to have some one like him. he loves it by the way.
