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.
Bright orange peel, citrus, rye spice, clove, pepper and honey. Vibrant, funky and sweet.
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.
Long finish, rich and pepper. Tons of rye spice, raw pepper character. It’s rich, spicy, fruity, everything I love in a rye.
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.
