The roots of Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company date back to the late 1800s when Henry Kraver - an ancestor of the current owners — built a thriving business distilling whiskey in Henderson, Kentucky. They would have continued operations had it not been for a temporary ban on distilling in World War I to preserve corn. Now owned by Corky Taylor and run by his son Carson and master distiller Caleb Kilburn, their Peerless Rye was named one of the top 20 Whiskies in the world in 2017.

Peerless Straight Rye Whiskey is a well balanced rye, bolstered by sweet tones of maple, brown sugar and light citrus sweetness. Finish with a hint of oak & no burn on the throat. Due to the carefully unique distilling process, Peerless offers a smooth taste that stands out from other ryes. A palatable sipping rye to be savored with friends and family. It’s a four-year-old that is bottled at 54.45% ABV, which cost more to make but yields a richer, fuller flavor resulting from no chill filtration, which also adds a lovely texture and mouth feel.

Peerless Barrel Proof Rye Whiskey Tasting Notes:

Color: Rich Amber
Aroma: Notes of fresh oak, banana, and corn followed by hints of vanilla, rye, pine, and anise.
Taste:  Starts with a sweeter flavor profile before a spicy blast that envelops your mouth. Notes of brown sugar and vanilla followed by rye spice, oak, pepper, and a touch of peaches. Sweet and spicy flavors all wrapped into one.
Finish:  Slightly dry and ever so tannic, corn and oak lead the way followed by leather, rye grain, and vanilla with lingering hints of new oak and dashes of smoke that stay present long after the sip ends.
