This WhistlePig is sourced Alberta rye that is bottled from a single barrel and at cask strength.
Big clove, definitely Alberta, wintergreen. Cinnamon, brown sugar, fruitiness.
Thick and rich. Some heat. Sweet wintergreen, brown sugar, cinnamon, fruity Alberta notes. Some molasses and astringency. Huge and abrasively rich rye.
Long, some heat. Sweet, some anise and a lot of minty notes here. Not MGP dill mint notes - more wintergreen minty. Its just mint all over the place coupled with anise.
Huge, delicious, rich. I really like it although the minty notes are very heavy handed here. If that was more balanced with the brown sugar and rye spice this would have scored higher. I definitely liked the KL barrel I had earlier in the year but this is no slouch either.
