Best Rye Whiskey
Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co. Small Batch Rye Whiskey
111.6 Proof (55.8% ABV); NAS; $90
Louisville, Kentucky

Kentucky Peerless is located in the heart of Downtown Louisville on North 10th Street, where Master Distiller Caleb Kilburn and the Peerless team produce this “lovely” sweet mash rye. Bottled non-chill-filtered and cask strength, Peerless earned a high mark of 94 as it edged out the also excellent A.M. Scott Distillery Barrel Proof Rye and Peerless Small Batch Double Oak Bourbon to top the category this Fall. From here, Peerless will compete in a head-to-head smackdown with our Barleycorn Spring 2023 rye whiskey champion, Sagamore Spirit 8-Year-Old, for the title of Best Rye Of 2023.
