About the Whiskey:

Peerless High Rye Bourbon is the first Peerless release to be crafted with a wholly unique mash bill since Peerless Bourbon and Peerless Rye.

Up until this release, the Peerless mash bill has remained consistent through their Bourbon and Barrel Finished Bourbon offerings.

The new mash bill introduces a higher rye content than previous Bourbon offerings.

Despite being corn-based, bourbon owes much of its flavor to other grains.

Our Kentucky Peerless High Rye Mash has a higher percentage of rye grain, emphasizing its sweet & spicy contribution.

110.6 Proof

Tasting Notes:

This Peerless High Rye Bourbon release offers a savory nose highlighting warm seasoned oak, leather, and citrus. Cedar, dark fruit and sweet grasses further develop the complex aroma.

The first sip boasts candied oak topped with toasted sugar and charred orange. A bright tea freshness emerges from the sweetness and a thick mouthfeel.

Another sip adds warm leather and rich tobacco to the profile—the competing sweet and earthy notes tussle in an exciting finish.

Awards/Reviews:

Double Gold - John Barleycorn Awards 2023

"It’s rich and nutty, with balanced tartness and spicy heat. A damn fine bourbon."

94 Points - Whisky Advocate

"This is one big whiskey. The high-rye wallops straight out of the glass with punchy spices— cinnamon, cardamom, and anise, bordering on under-sweetened Sambuca—candy corn sweetness, and damp hay. The sip is rich and the texture is viscous, with notable (though not overwhelming) heat from the high proof. Coffee beans, baking chocolate, and a slightly sour graininess lead the palate, with water bringing out cherry cordials, orange zest, and fig cookies." (Highest rated High Rye Bourbon of Fall 2023)
