  • Intro:

    This is a new release of a year older Peerless rye. I'm certain we all remember the day that Peerless 24 month rye hit the market at $120. Thankfully, this is a year older, and being sold in 200ml bottles - something I'm thankful for. I wish more producers empowered customers with more atypical formats. I know I'd take a lot more risks on 200ml bottles, rather than not spend any money at all if I can only buy 750ml bottles, etc. Anyways, this release is still using a sweet mash system and is bottled at cask strength. Lets dive in.

  • Nose:

    Rich cream, fresh toffee, new cut grass, light cardboard. Rich clove, allspice, cinnamon.

  • Taste:

    Thin to mefium mouth feel, lots of clove and allspice. Rye spice is there with a kick alongside some heavy ethanol. This is definitely well developed with an additional year of aging, and has some nice oak structure. Moist malty cardboard on the back palate.

  • Finish:

    Short, hot and more musty than the palate. Sawdust, oak, toffee, clove.

  • Overall:

    Nice progression from last years releases, but this yearns for more barrel time as well. Maybe next year, Peerless.

  • Score:

    4
