The very first completely in-house Spirit from Castle & Key is a wonderful Straight Rye worthy of praise and steeped in tradition.

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.

Any way you cut it, Pinhook Rye’d On is a special release. It is the first Straight Rye that they’ve ever issued. And — importantly — it is the first taste of Spirit that is 100% produced in house at their new distillery. This singular Spirit is comprised of 60% rye, 20% corn, and 20% malted barley with every drop fermented, distilled, aged, and bottled at 48.5% ABV on site at Castle & Key.

The namesake horse this year is a three year-old chestnut… same as this Whiskey.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Warm Chestnut.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma has plenty of Rye spice, but made gentle by caramel and floral notes.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Note the relatively high proportion of malted barley in the mash bill, bringing a floral and umami note to the palate in addition to the caramel and spice of the complementary grains.

The finish is medium to long with a warm spice on the back palate.
Ratings & Reviews
Very easy drinking the. I liked it
We ordered the wrong Pinhook Rye! We have had Pinhook Rye Humor Cask previously. The labeling is slightly confusing if you aren't exactly certain of the bottle. Nevertheless, this Pinhook Ryed On is not nearly as pleasing as the Rye Humor IMO. The Ryed On bottle has a profound medicinal, lingering taste. Slightly musty and harsh comparative to the Rye Humor. The Rye Humor was very smooth and easy drinking. Would not purchase Rye'd On again.
This whiskey is everything you’d want to have in a rye whiskey, and is a great value too at this price point too. Cheers!
Best rye I’ve ever had at this price point.
The cool sea air rolls up your coast line tongue. A wintergreen breeze saunters through your palette, ebbs to a spicy novocaine chill, winter unfolds and tucks itself behind your teeth.
Super smooth, really nice finish.
Holy moly. Buying as many bottles I can.
