WHISKEY FEATURE

PINHOOK WHISKEY
Crestwood, Kentucky

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. Breaking with the standard approach to American whiskey, where barrels are blended to replicate an established flavor profile at a fixed proof every time, Pinhook sees each set of barrels as a new crop, shaped by the natural variations in the ingredients and the elements. Working in small batches, we craft each vintage to express the best whiskey rather than the same whiskey, and set the proof to optimize the attributes of that year’s crop.

Pinhook Hard Rye Guy Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey
Sale $33.99 Reg. $36.99
The 2021 vintage of Pinhook’s flagship rye brims with aromas of apricot, cinnamon, and eucalyptus followed by a rich palate of candied licorice, caramel, and orange peel.

Pinhook Bourbon Heist Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Sale $33.99 Reg. $36.99
With and average age of 3 years and four months the 2021 vintage of Pinhook’s flagship bourbon shows bright aromas of orange blossom, nutmeg, and fresh roasted coffee. These transition to a vibrant palate of butterscotch, toasted coconut, almond, and sassafras

Pinhook Bourbon War Vertical Series 6yr Straight Bourbon
Sale $69.99 Reg. $74.99
With another year of maturation, the 6-Year Bourbon War showcases rich aromas of brown sugar, licorice, and toasted almond. Subtle notes of smoke and honey exhibited by the 5-year vintage have developed into a full palate of black cherries, cloves, and Tahitian vanilla.

WINE OF THE WEEK

Vietti

Perbacco
Nebbiolo
Langhe
2018
$24.99 reg.$26.99

Fondly known to many as a “baby Barolo”, Perbacco is always 100% Nebbiolo sourced from some of the fifteen different Grand Cru vineyards in Barolo. Recently the winery started using a small portion of grapes from its vineyards in Barbaresco as part of the blend as well. Each Cru is vinified separately, aged for two years in oak (as with the Barolo) and then a selection is made for expression of the vintage and then blended together. An incredible value, Perbacco is intended to show the full complexity of the zone and the Nebbiolo varietal to novice and seasoned wine lovers alike.

Sauvignon Blanc
2018

$39.99 Reg. $44.99

Winery Notes
On the nose this 2018 Sauvignon Blanc exudes enticing floral, citrus and flinty mineral aromas. On the palate, the entry is focused and bright with notes of mandarin, stone fruit, and gooseberry while the mid-palate shows the weight and viscosity of a finely balanced wine. Elegant floral and peach notes complement the richness and complexity from sur lie aging, while the fresh acidity leaves a pleasant lingering finish.

Zenato

San Benedetto
Lugana
2018

$13.99 Reg. $14.99

Winery Notes
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueline Estate, made of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec, sings of warm blackberries, cassis and wild blueberries with hints of plum preserves, menthol, stewed tea and tobacco plus a touch of underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bags of expressive black fruits, framed by grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and earthy.

Louis Jadot

Flora Springs Trilogy

Napa Valley
Red Wine
2016

$72.99
 Reg. $83.99

Winery Notes
Warm plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit is lush in feel, carried by bright anise and apple wood accents through the juicy finish. A good brambly underlay throughout adds energy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2029.
92 Points Wine Spectator

Casa Santos Lima
Colossal Reserva

Portuguese Red Blend
2016
$12.99 Reg. $13.99

Winery Notes
This is certainly an intensely structured wine, but its name seems rather excessive for what are balanced fruit and juicy tannins. It has a smooth, minty character, bold berry fruits and a ripe full texture. The tannins and acidity will allow the wine to age further well into 2019, although it can be drunk now.

BEER OF THE WEEK

Pipeworks
Harvest Haul
Wet-hopped Pale Ale
$15.99
4pk 16oz can
SOLD OUT!

Brewer’s Notes:
We used nearly 400 lbs of ultra fresh whole cone Citra, Cascade, Mosaic, and Simcoe on this limited batch of our first ever Wet-Hopped Pale Ale, Harvest Haul.

Fresh Hops are processed the day of harvesting to maintain more flavor and aroma than normal pelletized hops. This can only be done once per year – on harvest day – which means we can only brew this once per year! We’re picking up notes of melon, Juicyfruit gum, bright dankness, sweet orange peel, ripe papaya, and mango.

A typical IPA would have 2lbs per barrel of pellet hops, but knowing how special these whole cone hops were, we opted to use 12 lbs per barrel! If you’re wondering how we had space in our kettle for these hops – we didn’t! Unlike a normal hot-side hop addition, we had to use our mash tun!
This was a fun, special project that took a lot of coordination, planning and cooperation between our production team and our hop supplier.

Get On That Freshy Fresh!
