Peerless Rye Review by @whiskey_mark
“At 108.6 proof, this juice explodes with flavor. Spicy, complex, with a nice, warm finish. If you’re in Louisville, you need to take in one of their tours and tastings. Everyone there is very passionate about their product. They’re like a startup that happens to have a long, storied history. Check them out. Cheers!” – @whiskey_mark
Simple Rye Advice by @lacombe_bourbon
“Love this rye. No wonder it wins top honors. Make sure you find one and buy, buy, buy it.” – @lacombe_bourbon
Notes & Verdict by @bourbon_b_rad
“Decided to crack this bad boy and take her for a spin… First thought —nose: very light and delicate. Black tea, stone fruit, rye spice, light oak, bubble gum, and sour apple. The palate is more in my face–which I’m happy about. It’s not the dense, barrel-proof palate that I love, but it’s not shy, either. It offers ample spice, mimics some of the nose flavors but gives me a great apple that starts like a really tart and sweet Fuji and ends like a Granny Smith… A fine fall dram, if I do say so myself. Interested in how it opens up.” – @bourbon_b_rad
Peerless Rye Review by @njbourbonhunt
“I finished my first small-batch bottle earlier in the summer and, while impressed, I wasn’t expecting much difference in the single barrel. Holy crap. I was wrong. This barrel has so much more oak. I don’t know where it came from, only being two years old. Also getting a little chocolate and caramel.” – @njbourbonhunt
A Suprise Discovery by @betterboozin
“This two-year-old sweet mash rye is a delightful little surprise. I highly recommend!” – @betterboozin
Quick Recommendation by @indianabourbon
“Some may shy away because of the price point, but if you want incredibly tasty rye, you’ll want to pick one (or two) up!” – @indianabourbon
Amazing Find by @barrelandbrew
“Beautiful weather makes me want to get out great whiskey–like this Kentucky Peerless Rye. Tastes much older than two years, in my opinion. Great, great stuff. Highly recommended.” – @barrelandbrew
Thoughts from @whiskeynowadays_mike
“…I was impressed. I’ve had a lot of young bourbons and ryes, mostly out of Brooklyn and upstate NY, and this is, my friends, top of the class for its age. Even at 24 months, it had more barrel notes and refined flavors of something I would expect to see out of a 4-5 year. Is it good? Yes. Is it $125 good? Jury is still out.” – @whiskeynowadays_mike
Simple Verdict by @mparsons27
“It might be young, but it’s damn good. I’m looking forward to revisiting this in a few weeks.” – @mparsons27
Peerless Rye Review by @ryewhiskeylover
“This is an interesting one. Some of the same attributes as Hoch 16, but in a much better delivery for me. The nose is super interesting. Nice proof. You can also tell that the future is super bright for Kentucky Peerless! Still getting to know [this bottle].” – @ryewhiskeylover
Quick Notes from @straightbourbonwhiskey
“Rye tasting… The Peerless had a mellow, sweet nose. I really liked the taste except for its youthful finish. If it were aged 4-6 years, I think it would be fantastic.” – @straightbourbonwhiskey
Thoughts from @the_mash_and_drum
“This is an impressive and extremely well-crafted rye bottle at 109.1 proof, non-chill filtered and uses a sweet mash recipe.” – @the_mash_and_drum
Verdict by @dallaswhiskeyhunter
“For being as young as it is, this is still pretty balanced and flavorful.” – @dallaswhiskeyhunter
Peerless Rye Review: @willtravelforbourbon
“I avoided the two-year based on price and experience with other young ryes. This Peerless three-year is great! The first sip was eye-opening… pleasant surprise! Tasting notes: try it yourself.” – @willtravelforbourbon
Final Verdict by @houseofbourbonky
“Good things come in small packages. Sipping on our stock of 250ml Peerless Rye bottles while we wait for the arrival of the new Peerless Bourbon…” – @houseofbourbonky
