Straight Rye Whiskey that tastes like summer.

The founders of Pinhook chatted about their love of Kentucky, horses and Whiskey. They joked about buying a bunch of private barrels and when they all realized it ain't really a joke, they went and did it. "Pinhooking" means buying young thoroughbred horses, raising and selling them as racehorses. It's a Pimp my Ride sort of situation, but with stallions. And that's what the Bourbon Friends are doing with Whiskey: they find a promising barrel of MGP and create a unique blend they dedicate to a young racing horse. The trick is to generate higher demand for the batch if said horse does well in their career.

Bourbon N Rye is NAS Whiskey with a mash bill 95% rye and 5% malted barley. It's Pinhook's first Straight Rye Whiskey and it was blended by Sean Josephs at the Castle & Key Distillery in Kentucky. By the bye, the racing horse chosen for this release is also called Bourbon N Rye, and it comes from Kentucky as well. Bourbon N Rye is a young Whiskey, but don't let that deter you from trying it. If you could bottle summer, it would taste like this wonderful dram.

Fruity palate of oranges, apricots and citrus also brings hints of oak, rye spice, vanilla and white pepper.

Vanilla-forward finish brings an oak and rye surprise with notes of tobacco and heavy leather.
Ratings & Reviews
It has a pleasant profile, the vanilla, floral, and honey notes give it a nice spring like experience nose to finish. It’s not my favorite but I’d recommend for anyone to try.
This is a really great rye. Holds it own against more expensive ryes - I’m looking at you High West Rendezvous Rye.
Nice in mixed drinks, but not the best straight.
Another absolute gem of a rye. So delicious
