Peerless High Rye Bourbon Whiskey – What does Taste Like?
Peerless tells us that their 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.
