American Whiskey | Rye Whiskey
WhistlePig 12 Year Old World Cask Finish Rye Whiskey is 86 Proof that is a marriage of whiskeys aged in New American Oak and ingeniously finished in Port (7%) French Sauternes (30%,) and Madeira casks (63%). These three casks were highlighting the bold and spicy attributes of highly mature rye with the elegant flavors derived from each wine cask. The result is a smoothness and complexity never before seen in any whiskey. 'Old World' is a result of a four-year-long innovation experiment that included creating and examining dozens of unique finishes, blending and input from over 500 bartenders. The result is a whiskey that takes the elements that are most quintessential in an American rye – boldness, and character – and fused them with the elegance and grace of an 18 year old Scotch. Old World barrel-aging traditions inspire the rye. WhistlePig 12 Year Old World Cask Finish Rye Whiskey has deep amber and copper color, along with aromas of peach, spearmint, caramel, and oak. This breathtaking aroma filled with marzipan, ripe berries, and salted caramel. The palate expands with flavors of dark chocolate, taffy, fruitcake, and sugar cereal before leading to a long, dry, and smooth finish with hints of grapefruit, clove, and honey, which lingers on the tongue. Enjoy!
