Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co. of Louisville is releasing the new Peerless Double Oak Bourbon Whiskey. It will join Kentucky Peerless Rye Whiskey and Kentucky Peerless as a permanent offering. It will be in five states to begin including KY, CA, TX, FL and IL.
The Bourbon whiskey is aged a minimum of 4 years in first barrel. Peerless tells BourbonBlog.com that it is then finished in the second barrel and bottled when deemed worthy of the Peerless name.
For my initial review, I’ll share a few thoughts as I previously tasted the Kentucky Peerless Double Oak Whiskey it was released as part of their Single Barrel Program.
Unlike some “double barrel” styles of Bourbon whiskey, this expression isn’t simply flavors of Peerless Bourbon “amplified,” Rather, it transports us in time to what an older Peerless Bourbon could someday taste like at perhaps 10 to 13 years of age.
From the buttery notes to rich tobacco complimented by elegant sugars, this Peerless Double Oak Bourbon Whiskey delivers a balanced extraction of barrel without tasting overdone.
I will share more tasting notes as the official release unfolds.
Peerless will host a bottle signing event on Saturday, September 18th, 2021 will be the release of Peerless Double Oak Bourbon.
10:00 am to 2:00 pm EST.
