Pinhooking is a term used to describe the practice of buying young, thoroughbred horses, and then re-selling them as race-ready champions-in-training. The Bourbon Vertical Series is a unique opportunity to follow a group of 1,350 MGP bourbon barrels as they age from four to twelve years, and experience the arc of flavors throughout the nine-year journey. Every year, Pinhook selects 150 bourbon barrels from the lot and blends and proofs them to create the most balanced expression of the whiskey at that age.
This straight bourbon whiskey has a lively nose of butterscotch, cinnamon stick, licorice and vanilla. These aromas set the stage for a robust palate of cherry, chocolate, burleed brown sugar and chicory.
