Pinhook Vertical Series 5 Year "Tiz Rye Time" Rye Whiskey
The second annual release in Pinhook’s Rye Vertical Series is blended from 45 barrels originally sourced at MGP and aged at Castle & Key. Five years of age sees these barrels hit their stride with notes of exotic spice and dark, sweet fruits. This expression has been bottled at a higher proof than its 4-year-old predecessor (Pinhook always selects the proof at which an individual expression best shines.)
With a mash bill of 95% Rye and 5% Malted Barley, Tiz Rye Time 5 Year displays aromas of butterscotch, cardamom, dates, and grapefruit with a rich palate of licorice, gingerbread, and black pepper. Non-chill filtered and bottled at 51.5% ABV.
