Pinhook Rye'd On Straight Rye Whiskey 97pf
Each year, Pinhook releases a new vintage of bourbons and ryes. Every expression is the best representation of our barrels at that moment in time, and dedicated to a promising young thoroughbred. Through a combination of careful barrel selection, blending in small batches, and meticulous proofing, each Pinhook vintage has a personality as unique as the horse on the label
Delicate scents of hay, cinnamon, and peach form an aroma that is pleasing yet a bit understated. Hints of oak are present and work well with the other scents. The aroma is inviting, but lacks a certain amount of satisfying richness.
A slightly creamy and delicate delivery of cinnamon, mint, peach, and apricot. It’s inoffensive in almost every sense, as the flavors are well balanced and are presented in a gentle way. This is an enjoyable, easy-sipping rye through and through that puts drinkability above all else.
The heat and intensity ramps up during the finish and accents its peach notes well. A mild dry aftertaste lingers on the back of its more prominent oak and cinnamon notes. It’s not overly complex, but leans much more on classic rye characteristics than at any other part of its flavor profile.
