Best of the best - Robb Report

WhistlePig’s vanguard of finishing lies within their  Old World Rye, Aged 12 Years.
A Rye styled by Old World sensibilities at 86-proof.

This whiskey is the marriage of three finishes, each with their own distinctive flavour profiles.  After maturing for 12 years in New American Oak, the spirit is divvied into one of three barrels –Madeira (63%), Sauternes (30%) and Port (7%). Finished to perfection and blended into a symphony of flavour. It started as a grand experiment and ended as the first Rye whiskey of its kind, giving you Rye in all its glory. . Just like a fine wine, WhistlePig Old World Rye Aged 12 Years' rich fruit and spice notes are great with an epic meal.

ABOUT THE BRAND

WhistlePig began with the purchase of a farm in 2007, and after a few years of deep consideration and personal reflection the team at Whistle Pig committed themselves to crafting the world’s finest and most interesting rye whiskies. With help from Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, they discovered and purchased an incredible stock of 10 year old blending whiskey in Canada that was being profoundly misused. That initial stock, for which they are forever grateful, is what kicked off their grand adventure.
