WhistlePig Rye 18 Year 750ML
Dave Pickerell built WhistlePig in pursuit of crafting the world’s finest and most interesting Rye Whiskeys. After years of devotion to patient aging and innovative blending, we’ve turned our attention to experiments with grain – in particular, the bygone practice of malting rye. Before industrial catalysts were introduced to increase efficiency, farmer distillers would malt a small portion of their rye harvest in order to access the grain’s starch content and set off the fermentation process. Floral, earthy flavors imparted by malted rye would add nuance to the bold, peppery spice character of classic rye whiskey. To harness these flavors for our oldest expression of WhistlePig yet, we selected a whiskey distilled from 79% rye, 15% malted rye, and 6% malted barley. These grains form a harmony that spans the flavor spectrum, at once soft and floral, rich and savory, and full of spice. Its complexity is only heightened after 18 years in the barrel.
First of all let me start out by saying, I was introduced to this 18 year old at a VIP tasting at Whistle Pig Distillery in Shoreham this past August. If you're in Vermont and have an opportunity to visit the Distillery, I highly recommend it. Enough for the promo, let talk about this 18 year old double malt rye whiskey. Smooth taste that lingers on your palate until your next sip. An exceptional tasting double malt with flavors throughout the entire drink making it your new favorite. Cheers!
