Tiz Rye Time
4Y Vertical Series
This straight rye whiskey is proofed at 97 and has aromas of tangerine peel, cinnamon stick, and toffee, which transition to a palate of dried apricot, molasses, toasted cedar and clove.
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.
Every year over the next 9 years, Pinhook will select 150 bourbon barrels and 50 rye barrels to be blended and proofed creating the most balanced expression for the vintage. Join us on the journey beginning with our inaugural 4 Year old bourbon and collect and enjoy the Vertical Series in annual releases from age 4 to age 12. The Rye Vertical Series will begin in the spring of 2020.

Tiz Rye Time is by “the big horse” sire Tiznow out of the graded stakes placed mare Shanon Nicole. Bourbon Lane purchased him from his breeder, Sierra Farm, for $200,000 at the Fasig Tipton October sale. He was a farm favorite and his dam has since been bred to the leading sire Into Mischief, Quality Road and Uncle Mo, some of the those who standing in KY. He was well balanced, athletic and just had that look about him of class. He broke his maiden in his second start and has earned KY Derby points but unfortunately was sidelined with an injury. Bourbon Lane is hopeful that he will resume training in the coming months and reach his potential late in 2020 and 2021.
