Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company, a family-owned craft distillery in Louisville, announces the release of Batch 2 of its Small Batch Rum Barrel Finished Bourbon.

The Batch 2 release will kick off on June 1, 2024 at 10am at the Peerless Distillery at 120 North 10th Street in Louisville, Kentucky. Bottle signings will be offered at the distillery from 10 a.m. to noon

Peerless Rum Barrel Finished Bourbon is their second barrel finished Bourbon released only for their Double Oak Bourbon. Following its success, they carefully explored additional barrel finishes. Exposing Peerless Bourbon to two separate barrels allows for two full barrel extractions, enhancing tones and complexity. The dedicated Peerless tasting team strategically selects barrels that are well complemented by the extra barrel character to mature in an additional rum cask. This population of barrels is packed with flavor yet balanced enough to uphold the Peerless name.

“Our team of distillers did an exceptional job putting together the barrels for this project. Their passion is reflected in our selection of barrel-finished expressions. The Rum Barrel Finished Bourbon offers a beautiful, balanced taste. Not too overpowering, this easy sipper is perfect for the warmer weather. We look forward to sharing it with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do,” said Carson Taylor, fifth generation president.

Peerless Rum Barrel Finished Bourbon Batch 2 has a nose that leads with aromas of saltwater taffy, hints of sweet flowers and pears. Undertones of toasted coconut and plum join in. The first sip rolls across the palate with waves of sliced ​​pineapple fruit, reminiscent of a pineapple upside-down cake. Notes of cinnamon bread and cherry reduction stand out. The second sip quickly brings out notes of a piña colada with roasted sorghum, blueberry reduction and a kiss of sweet mint. This batch leaves you with a tropical fruit aftertaste.
