Pretty Fly for a Hard Rye Guy.

A sommelier, Master Taster, and his wife walk into a bar. Yup, all this started at the renowned Per Se restaurant in New York. Since the team of friends behind Pinhook made it there, their Rye can make it anywhere. There's the Castle & Key Distillery, where the master-blending happens somewhere on the crossroads of Kentucky horse racing heritage, winemaking, and Whiskey enthusiasm. The term 'pinhooking' refers to buying thoroughbred horses based on their pedigree and selling them when they mature. The unique and quite saturated story behind the said liqueur is inspiring, but more importantly, it delivers a magnificent taste.

The '21 Pinhook flagship Rye release is meticulously crafted and proofed over 2 years from the brand's 'proprietary' mash bill of 20% corn, 20% malted barley, and 60% rye by Sean Josephs - the founder of Pinhook. Each year they release a vintage Rye of the moment with a young thoroughbred on the label.

The 'Crop '21' is bursting with aromas of apricot, cinnamon, and eucalyptus notes. What follows is a rich palate of candy, caramel, and orange peels. One thing is for sure. This bottle comes for you with a noticeable amount of information, but the dram itself is simply delicious. It (only) took two years to develop this small-batch expression. Give it a try, and this way, you'll have a horse in the Kentucky Whiskey race too!

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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
