Kentucky Peerless High Rye Bourbon is the first new product with a wholly unique mash bill that Peerless has released since their original bourbon and rye expressions. The high rye mash contains over two times the rye content as their standard issue bourbon mash bill, and it’s all sweet mash

The grains are all milled, cooked, fermented, distilled and barreled in-house at the same location. There is no chill-filtration, and the barrels are a level-three char and burnt without the use of fuel, all of which lead to a final product that is bursting with flavor, depth, and a natural cleanliness that is all too rare in even many higher end American whiskeys today.

Peerless High Rye Bourbon Tasting Notes: 

Color: burnt caramel with a medium viscosity.
Aroma: The first pass is intensely aromatic with gorgeous floral character, including a surprising honeysuckle note wrapped around some dark plum. Short time in the glass reveals candied orange peel, leather, subtle tobacco, and chocolate. About an hour in the glass gave way to an underlying tapestry of wet clay, sweet corn, and caramel.
Mouthfeel: Heavy, silky
Palate: Lots of wood here up front along with some soft oak tannin, layered with hints of cocoa, butterscotch and slightly smokey leather.
Finish: medium-long finish that is all back-loaded with cinnamon and other baking spices, girded with a deep dark chocolate note.
