Whistle Pig Rye Whiskey Old World 12 Years 750 ML Hard to find !

This incredible whiskey, which won Double Gold at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, was aged 12 years and finished in three different types of European Casks.

WhistlePig The Old World Series Straight Rye Whiskey Marriage is the culmination of Pickerell’s year-long experiment to pay homage to the fine Scotch and winemakers of the Old World by using various types of European casks to finish his rye. This new release marries together three unique finishes - Madeira (63%), Sauternes (30%) and Port (7%) to create an astounding rye whiskey that is greater than the sum of its parts.

WhistlePig The Old World Series: Straight Rye Whiskey Marriage begins as a 12 year old, 95% rye whiskey distilled at MGP Distillery in Lawrenceburg Indiana. Once it reaches its new home at the WhistlePig Distillery in Vermont, Pickerell finishes the whiskey for three-to-six weeks in barrels that previously contained Madeira, Sauternes and Port.

Madeira is a fortified wine produced since the 17th century on the Portuguese islands of Madeira. WhistlePig The Old World Series: Madeira Finish Rye Whiskey was the first American rye whiskey to ever be finished in such casks.

Sauternes is a famous, sweet white wine produced in the French region of Bordeaux. The region’s unique microclimate, which consists of thick morning fog and hot, dry afternoons, causes a “noble rot” to grow on the grapes, imparting its signature flavor unto the wine.
Port, another fortified Portuguese wine, is produced in the Douro Valley, in Portugal’s northern provinces. Similar to brandy, port is rich, sweet and known for its robust flavor.

Once the rye has matured in its respective cask, the barrels are married together, giving the whiskey a 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 finish which lingers on the tongue.

WhistlePig The Old World Series: Straight Rye Whiskey Marriage won a Double Gold at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
