Peerless / Kentucky Straight Rye
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - This rye shows a surprising amount of sweet fruit and toasted oak on its full-bodied palate. The aromatics lean more toward traditional grain, with savory aromas of dried honey, cloved oranges, sandalwood and a snappy finish with hints of spice. - 2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation).April/2019
Whisky Advocate 92 points - A nicely layered nose reveals cocoa, fruit, nougat, nuts, and spice in abundance. The dark chocolate envelops the fruit like chocolate-covered blueberries, while the warming spice evokes fresh-baked gingerbread cookies, with traces of paraffin wax hinting at maturity. The rich palate is noticeably hot, but water treats it well, and is necessary to fully unleash the confectionary notes of Jordan almonds and root beer barrels candy as persistent vanilla and cherry coulis ride to the pepper-laced finish that’s long and expressive with drying oak..January/2019
