Pinhook, 'Bourbon Heist' Bourbon Country Straight Bourbon Whiskey
From the Skurnik website: Pinhooking is a term used to describe the practice of buying young, thoroughbred horses, overseeing their initial development, and then re-selling them as race-ready champions-in-training. The Pinhook brand pays tribute to this practice and the parallels between investing in a horse’s potential and that of a young whiskey.
Bottled in Fall 2018, this straight bourbon whiskey has over three years of barrel age and a mash bill of 75% corn, 15% rye, and 4.5% malted barley. A vibrant burst of ripe pear and baked apricot seamlessly give way to notes of toffee, date, and vanilla bean. A lingering and lifting finish of cinnamon, cedar, and peppercorn round out this complex and exceptionally balanced expression. 47.75% ABV.
