Details
A marriage of American craft distilling and old-world cask ageing, WhistlePig's 12-year-old rye owes its complex nature to the spirit of experimentation, and to the essence of European wines.
Born from the idea that a whole can be greater than the sum of its parts, a trio of casks – port, sauternes and madeira – add their own distinctive flavour to the rye. Like sections of a symphony, each finish delivers unique character to the final whiskey.

Bold and distinctive

Appearance

Dark amber.

Aroma

Caramel, vanilla, and winter fruit.

Taste

Rye spice mingles with the sweetness of apricots, plums, raisins, dates and honey. Dark chocolate comes through on the finish, joining winter fruit, caramel and vanilla.

BLEND & ORIGIN WHISTLEPIG

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
WhistlePig Old World Cask Finish

After maturing for more than a decade in Vermont oak, the spirit is split across three styles of European wine cask: port pipes (7%), sauternes barrels (30%) and madeira casks (63%).
 

This precision finishing is then expertly balanced by WhistlePig's master blender.
