Review #847 – Hooker’s House Sonoma Style High Rye Pinot Noir Finished Bourbon

This is an interesting Bourbon, sourced from Kentucky and finished, then barreled, by Prohibition Spirits under the Hooker’s House line. It is 4 years old, before it makes a hop and a skip over to California for a 9 month stay in Schug Pinot Noir barrels. It features a pretty robustly rye forward mashbill, clocking in at 54% corn and 46% rye.
