Peerless originally released their Double Oak Bourbon in 2021. After its success, they decided to explore Double Oak Rye Whiskey and ultimately make the expression a regular offering. This release marks their first-ever Small Batch Double Oak Rye Whiskey. Exposing Peerless whiskey to two separate casks allows for two full barrel extractions resulting in enhanced notes and complexity. The dedicated Peerless tasting team strategically selects barrels that are complemented well by the extra barrel character. This population of barrels is packed with flavor yet balanced enough to uphold the Peerless name.
“With the amazing response to our limited Double Oak program, we decided to improve the quality and accessibility of the product. Where in the past we would leave things up to chance, we are now intentionally curating barrels to become Double Oak,” explains Caleb Kilburn, Master Distiller.
Peerless Double Oak Rye offers a beautiful nose bursting with roasted nuts, citrus zest, and sweet oak. The first sip offers notes of toasted sugar, bold oak, spicy cinnamon, and sweet grasses. Citrus to offer a tea element. Another sip adds warm leather and rich tobacco. The finish returns to celebrate the sweet oak of the barrel, and the mouthfeel thickens to a chew.
