Pinhook's "Bourbon War" is a nine year, limited Vertical Series.
Today's feature is the 2nd vintage in a nine-year journey. With an anticipated release each year, the 9th and final release will be hitting shelves in 2027.
Bourbon War's 5 Year Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from a mere 150 barrels. With a higher proof of 104 (vs 98 for the inaugural release), there was nearly a 20% reduction in yield due to evaporation. At this rate, the yield from the 2027 release could be 1/3 of the inaugural release.
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, bruleed brown sugar and chicory.
What We Love About This Bourbon
Smooth. Smooth. Smooth. Smooth is the Pinhook calling card. It is the most common description we hear from anyone who enjoys a Pinhook bourbon or rye. Last year, the inaugural 4 Year Release sold out in days.
If you are a bourbon or rye fan, be sure you get to enjoy this limited release series.
Add a drop of water and enjoy!
