WhistlePig 12 Year Old World Cask Finish Rye
Our vision is to respect tradition and embrace progress. WhistlePig 12 Year takes the bold character of American Rye and elevates it through Old World barrel-aging traditions. After years of experimentation, we found perfection in a Straight Rye Whiskey aged 12 years in New American Oak and finished in Madeira, Sauternes, and Port wine casks. The result is a symphony of flavor. Plentiful spice notes are rounded out by subtle sweetness, giving you rye in all of its glory - and then some.
Three Old World cask finishes married together. The final blend selected after 6 months of experiments:
Madeira Finish - 63%
Sauternes Finish - 30%
Port Finish - 7%
Aged at a minimum of 12 years, presented at 86 proof.
Nose: Dates, Raisins, Honey, Marmalade, and Apple Pie
Palate: Apricot & Honey, followed by a burst of Rye Spice, with Plums, Caramel and a touch of mint
Finish: Rich Winter Fruits give way to Oak, Dark Chocolate and Butterscotch
