A powerfully strong and spirited Straight Rye with plenty of kick.

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.

So, the horse’s name is Rye Humor. And that’s got to be the best name ever for a Thoroughbred racehorse raised in Kentucky.

Pinhook Rye Humor Cask Strength is a wonder of flavor packed into a Straight Rye Whiskey. And to call it a “high-rye” would not do it justice — this spirited Spirit is 95% rye, 5% malted barley and 100% power at 57% ABV. It’s a limited edition too. There were only 65 barrels that met the specs and that’s all that there will ever be. And you should know that the average age of the Whiskey in this dram is four year and was blended to taste by Sean Josephs at the Castle & Key Distillery in Frankfort Kentucky.

Ratings & Reviews
Some stiff stuff. Expected from a higher proof rye, but this is an extremely spicy and tobacco-y drink. Compared to how it would be described, I actually enjoy it more than I would have figured. I'm shocked that someone else mentioned a dill note, because that's exactly what I'm getting pretty strongly too. But.. I kind of like it?
Was expecting love this based on the flavor spiral. There’s a very present dill note that I’m really not liking. Great marketing/design but tastes young and mediocre
Strong flavors
Spicy fruit on the nose and surprisingly smooth and easy for a higher proof rye. Nice finish with dark fruit and a hint of sweetness.
More of a bourbon drinker, so this might be too mellow for rye folk. Quite delicate and nice in a sazerac.
Slightly sharp on the tongue but a better finish
