80 Highly Rated Bourbon General Review of Pinhook Bourbon Heist

The first thing you notice on the nose of Pinhook Bourbon Heist is a very mild oak. After that, you get a little bit of vanilla and orange mixed in it. Virtually no ethanol. Gentle oak returns at the end of the initial nosing.

The ethanol is a little sharp as it hits the tongue the first time. However, it has a strange creaminess even though it looks thin. There is a sweetness on the palate as well as oak. Those two things dominate the tasting. I am shocked at the creaminess of the mouthfeel. There’s almost a syrupy sweetness to Bourbon Heist. 

As you would expect for a 98 proof bourbon, it drinks reasonably smooth. While the finish is not short, I wouldn’t exactly put it in the medium range either. There is sweet oak again on the finish and a spicy kick.

Pinhook Bourbon Heist is surprisingly good if you like sweet bourbon. This is what I would call an easy drinker.

Smell IS taste. I am just a guy who has been hit with the bourbon bug and who has come to the conclusion that life is too short to drink average tasting bourbons. Go Gators!
