Barreled: April 13th, 20015
This is our first barrel from Peerless. Normally Peerless Rye is on the sweeter/creamier side, but for this barrel, we decided to go with something a little more spicy. Notes of paprika, black-pepper, and unsalted caramel all mesh together for a more floral leaning whiskey, but with some sweeter notes in the background to keep it balanced. The first sip is clean and forward on the palate. Notes of brown-sugar and maple marry together with a very approachable rye spiciness.
