Vertical Series Bourbon

Bourbon War—5 Year

Pinhook Vertical Series Bourbon Bottle
  • Corn


  • Rye


  • Malted Barley


  • Proof


This straight bourbon whiskey has a lively nose of butterscotch, cinnamon stick, licorice and vanilla. These aromas set the stage for a robust palate of cherry, chocolate, brûléed brown sugar and chicory.

The Bourbon Vertical Series is a unique opportunity to follow a group of 1,350 MGP bourbon barrels as they age from four to twelve years, and experience the arc of flavors throughout the nine-year journey. Every year, Pinhook selects a group of bourbon barrels from the lot and blends and proofs them to create the most balanced expression of the whiskey at that age. The Vertical Series began with the inaugural 4 Year release in 2019, and the journey continues through annual releases up to age 12. The Rye Vertical Series began in the spring of 2020.
