Kentucky Peerless Double Oak Bourbon Awarded Top 20 Whiskies of 2021

“Double Oak was born of a happy accident, when a leaky barrel forced the distilling team to transfer its liquid to a new charred oak barrel. Exposure to that second barrel gave the whiskey amped-up flavors and lots more complexity. This is a bourbon that has gone into overdrive, and it handles the road just fine. Its syrupy sweet texture is checked by the oak influence, and the palate opens to flavors aplenty—dried peaches, warm apple pie, Christmas spice, gingerbread, raisin cake, chocolate, and pumpkin purée. Perfect as a holiday warmer or a backyard barbecue sipper, this is a whiskey for all seasons,” says David Fleming, Whisky Advocate.
To celebrate, the first 50 bottles of Double Oak Bourbon sold will be signed by Master Distiller Caleb Kilburn. Pre-orders start on Monday, December 13th. Exposing Peerless Bourbon to two separate casks allows for two full barrel extractions resulting in supercharged notes and supreme complexity and mouthfeel. The dedicated Peerless tasting team strategically selects barrels with prominent grain, fruit, and herbaceous notes that are complemented well by the extra barrel character. This population of barrels are packed with flavor yet balanced enough to uphold the Peerless name.
