A delicious high-corn Bourbon bottled hot with a rebellious attitude.

The story of Pinhook Whiskey starts in 2014 with its first release. You see, each fall the folks in the newly restored Castle & Key Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, create a single batch of Bourbon and a single batch of Rye. Each release is named after a thoroughbred racehorse coming up in the Bourbon Lane Stables — the horse’s stats are even printed on the labels. So each issuance is a bit different, just like each racehorse is different. It’s a great story and they sell out every year. In 2016 they refurbished the Old Taylor Distillery (mothballed in 1972) and are now bottling their first completely in-house Spirits.

Pinhook Bohemian Bourbon was the first Bourbon in more than a half century to be produced and aged on-site at the refurbished Castle & Key Distillery. The mash bill is high-corn at 75% with 15% rye and 10% malted barley. It’s aged in new oak and bottled at an impressive 47.5% ABV. They proudly state that there is no "target" flavor profile. This means that each annual vintage release with reflect the grains, terroir, and environment of the time in which it was produced.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The fragrance reminds you of orange zest, lemon curd, and freshly baked bread.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
With a splash of water the taste is spot-on for a high-corn dram with notes of caramel corn, marzipan, exotic fruits, and a bit of dark chocolate.

Finish
The finish is long and warm.

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
