“Double Oak was born of a happy accident when a leaky barrel forced the distilling team to transfer its liquid to a new charred oak barrel. Exposure to that second barrel gave the whiskey amped-up flavors and lots more complexity. This is a bourbon that has gone into overdrive, and it handles the road just fine. Its syrupy sweet texture is checked by the oak influence, and the palate opens to flavors aplenty—dried peaches, warm apple pie, Christmas spice, gingerbread, raisin cake, chocolate, and pumpkin purée. Perfect as a holiday warmer or a backyard barbecue sipper, this is a whiskey for all seasons,” says David Fleming, Whisky Advocate.



Kentucky Peerless Double Oak Bourbon is named number 8 in Whisky Advocate’s Top 20 Whiskies of 2021.


Kentucky Peerless Double Oak Bourbon is named number 8 in Whisky Advocate’s Top 20 Whiskies of 2021. Each year, Whisky Advocate Buying Guide reviewers collectively sample hundreds of whiskies. To determine their Top 20, they begin by looking only at whiskies that rated "outstanding" (90 points or higher on Whisky Advocate's 100-point scale). In addition to quality, the selection also prioritizes value (based on price) and availability.

To celebrate, the first 50 bottles of Double Oak Bourbon sold will be signed by Master Distiller Caleb Kilburn.  Pre-orders start on Monday, December 13th. Exposing Peerless Bourbon to two separate casks allows for two full barrel extractions resulting in supercharged notes and supreme complexity and mouthfeel. The dedicated Peerless tasting team strategically selects barrels with prominent grain, fruit, and herbaceous notes that are complimented well by the extra barrel character. This population of barrels is packed with flavor yet balanced enough to uphold the Peerless name.
