Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company

Kentucky Peerless Releases Second Batch of Bourbon Finished in a Rum Barrel

Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company, a family-owned and operated craft distillery in Louisville, recently announced the release of Batch 2 of its Small Batch Rum Barrel Finished Bourbon…just in time for Father’s Day gifting!

The release of Batch 2 kicked off on June 1, 2024 at the Peerless Distillery located at 120 North 10th Street in Louisville, Kentucky.

Kentucky Peerless Bourbon Whiskey

Peerless Rum Barrel Finished Bourbon is their second barrel-finished Bourbon to be released only to their Double Oak Bourbon. After its success, they carefully explored additional barrel finishes. Exposing Peerless Bourbon to two separate casks allows for two full barrel extractions, enhancing notes and complexity. The dedicated Peerless tasting team strategically selects barrels that are complemented well by the extra barrel character to be aged in an additional rum barrel. This population of barrels is packed with flavor yet balanced enough to uphold the Peerless name. 

Peerless Rum Barrel Finished Bourbon Batch 2 boasts a nose that leads with aromas of salt water taffy, hints of sweet florals, and pears. Undertones of toasted coconut and plums join. The first sip rolls over the palate with waves of sliced pineapple fruit, reminiscent of an upside-down pineapple cake. Notes of cinnamon bread and cherry reduction stand out. The second sip quickly brings forth notes of a piña colada with burnt sorghum, blueberry reduction, and a kiss of sweet mint. This batch leaves you with a tropical fruit finish.

Find out more at or visit the distillery at 120 N. 10th Street in downtown Louisville. The distillery is open for tours and tastings by reservation Monday-Thursday from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
