A beautiful, classic high-rye devised into an experiment… literally for the ages.

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.

This is one of the coolest ideas EVER. Stay with us on this story… Pinhook has acquired a total of 950 Barrels of Rye Whiskey — 95% rye and 5% malted barley — distilled in Indiana in 2016. Each year they will take fifty casks for a special edition Rye Vertical Series release. If you get one bottle each year, you will follow the same batch of premium Rye Whiskey as it ages from four to twelve years in 2028.

Pinhook Tiz Rye Time just came out and it is the inaugural release — now four years old and bottled at 48.5% ABV. True to form, each release will be named after a thoroughbred race horse.

Ratings & Reviews
Smooth and not to bad
Love this one. Its youth make it very easy to drink even though 97 proof. It has a sweetness and complexity that is surprising for only 4 years. Can only imagine what more years in the barrel will produce. The flavor profile definitely not your typical Rye whiskey. I actually prefer it to the normal Rye profile. Highly suggest giving it a try. Very Sweet no doubt about it. So much so that if not in the mood for that you shouldn't go there until you are in the mood. But if you are --- perfect choice. Hard for me to imagine what this will turn into after 8 or so more years in the barrel. Might be something very special.
Very nice. I enjoyed this.
So smooth
I very much like the Rye Humor Cask Strength and I love the idea of tracking a blend over several bottlings. So I had to try this. I was not disappointed. Nice spice. Good on a rock and also holds its own in any cocktail. I will definitely buy again and am looking forward to next year’s version.
Fruity nose. Taste starts off spicy and then finishes sweet. I should have ordered another bottle before it sold out.
Very nice rye with a well blended profile. The hint of orange peel is a very nice surprise. Looking forward to how this rye develops over the project's duration.
Sharp and spicy with sweetness as almost an afterthought. I usually like something complex but I found the flavors a bit confusing
Great Flavor and very smooth
