Bent on Bourbon
Like past releases, this batch boasts vanilla bean, caramel, and walnut spice intertwined. Hints of roasted coffee bean, maple, brown sugar and roasted macadamia are followed by a palate that is big, spicy and sweet with an oh so lovely transition to a long finish.
Every fall Pinhook releases a new bourbon and rye, each of which is connected to a promising young thoroughbred horse. The whiskey in each release is the best expression of our barrels at that moment in time, and we blend and proof each release to be as unique as the horse on the label. The result is an annual vintage of Pinhook Bourbon and Pinhook Rye that become instant collectibles. And while it is impossible to know if the horse on the bottle will go all the way to the Kentucky Derby, there is no gamble on the quality of what's inside.
Bent on Bourbon comes from the same mashbill as previous releases, but sits in the barrel for about 7 more months than previous releases. Enjoy!

BoB had early career success winning 3 in a row in 2015. This impressive run was capped off with a dominating win at the Iowa Derby. While already a stakes winner, 2016 holds many more chances for this talented colt to improve his resume. The hand stippled label on the fourth release of Pinhook Bourbon shows Bent on Bourbon in the winners circle after the Iowa Derby.
