Pinhook Tiz Rye Time 5 Year is the second bottle in the brand’s vertical rye series and follows the inaugural launch of the 4 year in 2020. With an additional year of aging and 6 proof points higher, it is fascinating to see how the flavor profile changes. While a lot of the same base notes are still present, the fruit notes of the rye, especially in the nose, are nicely amplified. It’s a fruit-forward rye that is layered in with nuanced sweet notes throughout the sip. The end result is a well balanced sip that allows for easy distinguishment of its flavors. This vertical series is shaping up to be really fun to follow along with, and is worth the reasonable cost of admission to partake in.
