Peerless High Rye Bourbon
Peerless crafts their whiskey from grain to bottle. The process takes time, but they wanted to create an authentic product that isn’t found anywhere else. 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 with the 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. This Kentucky Peerless High Rye Mash has a higher percentage of rye grain, emphasizing its sweet & spicy contribution.
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.
Every drop of Peerless® Whiskey is honestly crafted, never sourced. Never chill-filtered. Strictly sweet mash. Barrel proof. No water added. Made in the USA.
