Bourbon Review: Pinhook Bourbon Country (Fall 2018)

Pinhook Bourbon - Straight Bourbon Whiskey - 95.5 proof

Every year, Pinhook releases a new bourbon and rye, each of which is connected to a promising young thoroughbred horse.

"When you think Bourbon you think Kentucky, and when you think Kentucky you think of horses. So there is something to be said for that”

While this juice is sweeter than both of us normally like, we were both pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed Bourbon Country.

We were way off of our game for this episode, it is safe to say that we are not up to par on our horse facts or really anything else for that matter. After trying Pinhook Bourbon Country, we think this is a surprisingly good bourbon and we would highly recommend giving it a try. Per the usual, we look at 5 different categories in our own terms: Bottle, Appearance, Smell, Value, and Taste.
