  • Excerpt: In regards to body, it was kind of in the middle with a longer finish. However, all in all, this was a simple, but solid whiskey.

  • Excerpt: From showing really abrasive youth and malt a couple years ago, this release is a much needed 180 to that and really quite pleasant to drink.

  • Intro:

    This is Bohemian - Castle and Key's first on premise distilled, aged and bottled release, coming out under the Pinhook label. A blend of 100 barrels aged just shy of 3 years (2 years, 10 months to be precise) this should be a great look at the trajectory Pinhook (and Castle and Key) are following. Stock image. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet cream, coconut shavings, vanilla bean and fresh biscuit. Light, tropical and sweet. Nice creamy sweetness without must or youth.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel, but a bit hot. Toffee, sweet cream, fresh baked bread, nice oak structure for the youth.

  • Finish:

    Long finish but much hotter here than expected. Nice oak component, lemon, creamy sweetness and some bitter oak. Tobacco, coconut shavings, bright apple and rich pepper.

  • Overall:

    This performs much better than I ever expected, in a really impressive way. From showing really abrasive youth and malt a couple years ago, this release is a much needed 180 to that and really quite pleasant to drink. I have high hopes for both Pinhook and Castle & Key here.
