Tasting Notes

It may sound strange but Pinhook has probably been more responsible in shedding a light on the second coming of the legendary Castle & Key Distillery, originally operated by Colonel E.H. Taylor, than the Castle & Key folks themselves. That's partially because the folks at Pinhook new the role the distillery would play in the future of Bourbon and has been working with them to source, blend and bottle some of their earliest whiskies. This limited batch was distilled from 75% corn, 15% rye & 10% malted barley - a standard mash that drinks like a new benchmark for what Bourbon made this way and age for this long should taste like. Notes include ripe mandarins, toasted coconut, grated nutmeg, cinnamon, buttered cornbread and candied ginger.

Staff Pick Notes

For this year's Bourbon release, Pinhook worked with Castle & Key Distillery to bring us a whiskey worthy of your full attention. Castle & Key has quite the history, beginning in 1887 with the legendary Colonel E.H. Taylor! Taylor created a true distillery destination in Millville, Kentucky which included an actual castle! Sadly, in 1920, Prohibition forced its closure, and it eventually fell into ruin. Fast forward to 2014, when Will Arvin and Wes Murry decided to embark in a grand restoration project, and here we are today. A fully restored distillery with immense history that Pinhook realized early on could produce some very special whiskey. They have purchased some of the earliest liquid from Castle & Key, and bottled it here at over 3 years of age. Creamy vanilla, brown sugar, orange, clove, and nutmeg welcome your every sip!
