The first WhistlePig product aged in Vermont Estate Oak harvested right from the farm. It is their oldest whiskey.
Vermont oak rings are tighter than the standard oak used in whiskey barrels. Each ring is an opportunity to impart more flavour and depth in the whiskey.
This Rye has been waiting for 15 years to reach your lips, and time is something that no amount of money can buy.
Nose: Deep and rich, dominated by caramel, vanilla, and oak with hints of allspice and burnt orange
Palate: Warm, rich, and slightly creamy. Loads of butterscotch and baking spice with leather and a hint of tobacco
Finish: Ultra long and rich, warm, and inviting.
Ratings: Double Gold Medal / 2016 Sanfrancisco World Spirits Competition.
