Kentucky Peerless Set To Launch High Rye Bourbon

Whiskey maker Kentucky Peerless is releasing in mid-April its High Rye Bourbon, the first Peerless expression made with a completely unique mash bill since their initial bourbon and rye releases.

A statement from Peerless notes that up until now, the distiller’s mash bill has remained consistent through their bourbon and barrel finished bourbon offerings.

The new mash bill introduces a higher rye content than their previous bourbons.

The distiller’s notes show that this Peerless High Rye Bourbon release offers a savory nose of warm seasoned oak, leather, and citrus. There’s also aromas of cedar, dark fruit, and sweet grasses.

On the palate, the High Rye tastes of candied oak topped with toasted sugar and charred orange. There’s a bright tea freshness, followed by warm leather and tobacco. Sweet and earthy notes compete on the finish.

Peerless is making the High Rye Bourbon expression a regular offering, and is kicking things off with a distillery release on April 15th in Louisville, Kentucky.

Kentucky Peerless, run by the Taylor family, started barreling in 2015. Corky Taylor is the fourth generation CEO that’s helping to breathe life back into his great-grandfather’s legacy that originally started in 1889.
