Vertical Series Rye
Tiz Rye Time—4 Year
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.
The Vertical Series is a unique opportunity to follow a group of 450 MGP rye barrels, as they age from four to twelve years, and experience the arc of flavors throughout the nine-year journey.
Beginning with this inaugural vintage, Pinhook will
blend a new batch of approximately 50 rye barrels
each spring and set a proof to maximize the
balance and complexity of the whiskey at that age.
The Bourbon Vertical Series launched in the fall of
2019, and the 5-year-old bottling will be released
in the fall.
The Vertical Rye is dedicated to Tiz Rye Time, a
talented young colt who had completed four races
at the time of the 4 Year vintage’s release.

Bred in Kentucky
Our first release of Vertical Series Rye is paired with Tiz Rye Time, son of Tiznowout and Shanon Nicole, by Majestic Warrior.
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.
