  • Intro:

    A bonkers expensive release from our friends at the farm, Whistle Pig’s 18yr double malt rye whiskey is a $400, crystal clad limited edition featuring a unique mash bill. Leveraging 79% rye, 15% malted rye and 6% malted barley, this has the potential to be quite interesting. Bottled at 46% ABV.

  • Nose:

    Bright orange peel, citrus, rye spice, clove, pepper and honey. Vibrant, funky and sweet.

  • Taste:

    Moderate mouthfeel, not too thick but plenty complex. Heat is well placed. Honey, praline, toffee and bright citrus sweetness. Lime zest, rising bread, brown sugar and clove.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, rich and pepper. Tons of rye spice, raw pepper character. It’s rich, spicy, fruity, everything I love in a rye.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is really well executed. I was really wary of this release given the high price and the “collector” appeal that they seem to be going with but the quality is here and it’s extremely enjoyable.
