Every year, Pinhook releases a new bourbon and rye, each connected to a promising young thoroughbred. The whiskey in each release is the best expression of our barrels at that moment in time, and we blend and proof releases to be as unique as the horse on the label. The Vertical Series is a one-time opportunity to follow a group of barrels, all filled within months of each other, as they age.
With another year of age over the inaugural Vertical Series Tiz Rye Time, this five-year straight rye whiskey brims with aromas of butterscotch, cardamom, dates, and grapefruit. Notes of molasses and clove in the 4-Year Rye have developed into a rich pallet of dark caramel, gingerbread, and black pepper.
