Kentucky Peerless tells BourbonBlog.com they will release of their Small Batch Double Oak Rye Whiskey.
The release will take place at the Peerless distillery at 120 North 10th Street, Louisville, KY 40202 on Friday, November 25 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m ET. Bottles will be available on a first-come-first-served basis. Bottle signings will be offered throughout the event.
Peerless originally released their Double Oak Bourbon in 2021. This release marks their first-ever Small Batch Double Oak Rye Whiskey.
We can personally tell you that we’ve tasted Single Barrel expression of the Double Oak Rye at BourbonBlog.com and they are complex and divine.
After its success, they decided to explore Double Oak Rye Whiskey and ultimately make the expression a regular offering. Exposing Peerless whiskey to two separate casks allows for two full barrel extractions resulting in enhanced notes and complexity.
The dedicated Peerless tasting team strategically selects barrels that are complemented well by the extra barrel character.
This population of barrels is packed with flavor yet balanced enough to uphold the Peerless name. “With the amazing response to our limited Double Oak program, we decided to improve the quality and accessibility of the product.
Where in the past we would leave things up to chance, we are now intentionally curating barrels to become Double Oak,” explains Caleb Kilburn, Master Distiller.
Peerless Double Oak Rye offers a beautiful nose bursting with roasted nuts, citrus zest, and sweet oak. The first sip offers notes of toasted sugar, bold oak, spicy cinnamon, and sweet grasses. Elements of citrus and and warm leather and rich tobacco are also present. The finish returns to celebrate the sweet oak of the barrel and the mouthfeel thickens to a chew.
