Bourbondini uses the same 75% corn, 15% rye, 10% malted barley recipe as the prior two releases.
The 2022 vintage of High Proof Bourbon showcases a nose bursting with fresh fig, apple cider, marzipan, and clove. These lead to a rich palate of dried papaya, coffee, cinnamon, and burnt caramel.

Pinhook High Proof BourbonBohemian Bourbon

2020 114.5 proof, aged 34 months,

Bohemian Bourbon features a 75% corn, 15% rye, 10% malted barley recipe and was distilled at Castle & Key in Frankfort, KY.

The first bourbon in half a century to be distilled, aged and bottled at the legendary Old Taylor Distillery (now Castle & Key) and Pinhook’s inaugural bourbon crafted from its custom Kentucky distillate. This limited expression of 100 barrels, aged more than 34 months, was blended and proofed by Sean Josephs, Pinhook’s Co-Founder and Master Blender. Each year, Pinhook releases a new vintage of bourbons and ryes. Every expression is the best representation of our barrels at that moment in time, and dedicated to a promising young thoroughbred. Through a combination of careful barrel selection, blending in small batches, and meticulous proofing, each Pinhook vintage has a personality as unique as the horse on the label.
