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.

Dog Dogson's Smartass corner
Character Dogson
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
