Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co. - Straight Rye Whiskey - 108.4 proof
The Kentucky Peerless Dimensions series is a unique way to offer single barrel selections to avid fans everywhere.
“Rare notes and characteristics that make each barrel stand apart from our standard profile are celebrated and show off the range of our products."
“It's sweet, but you get the heat and the wood that lets you know you're drinking whiskey“
It’s always great to find something truly unique, so whenever we get our hands on a single barrel as coveted as a Peerless Dimensions series, we have super high hopes. This particular “Chocolate Creme Brûlée” did not disappoint! We were both absolutely floored with how tasty this rye whiskey is. Its sweet without being sugary, fantastically complex with notes of cocoa, oak, rye spice, and creme, and has a finish on it that rivals anything we’ve ever had. We cannot say enough good things about this whiskey! Per the usual, we look at five different categories in our own terms: Bottle, Appearance, Smell, Value, and Taste.
