Peerless® Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey Single Barrel Selection
Caramelized sugar and sweet oak lead off a succulent nose.
The first taste is sweet and spicy oak but gives way to caramel and orange spice. Cocoa and malted sugar soon appear. Another sip enhances a leather/tobacco earthiness but quickly turns its attention back to the sweet oak and citrus.
The finish dries the palate and allows an orange zest/cocoa note to slowly simmer away.
