  • Malted Barley

  • Proof

    115.3

This first Cask Strength Pinhook release was bottled at 115.3 proof and has a deep and bright nose of crème brûlée, orange zest, and toasted coconut, which sets the stage for a rich and harmonious palate of pralines, brioche, cocoa, and candied cinnamon. This release recently won Gold at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Every year, 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.
