Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company announces the inaugural release of its first bourbon in 102 years. After beginning barreling in March of 2015, the Taylor family has been patiently crafting one barrel at a time making fine rye and bourbon. Corky Taylor, fourth generation and CEO, has been breathing life back into his great-grandfather’s legacy that originally started in 1889. Over 10 decades have passed since Peerless Bourbon has been sold and the Peerless four-year-old product will be the first Peerless Bourbon available without a prescription since Prohibition.
You definitely feel the 110.6 proof of this bourbon. Great nose, oaky and spices on the tongue with a bit of fruit and a long dry smoked citrus finish. Too strong for me to be an everyday sipper but so happy to have been have to add it to the mix of occasional bourbons.
