USA : VERMONT
One of the few 100% rye whiskies on the market, Whistle Pig's Straight Rye delivers quite a punch. The oak mellows out the harsh spiciness of the rye over the years but the distinct herbal spice qualities still come through. Incredible notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, some hints of citrus mingling with a minty freshness. There is a caramel richness on the palate. It finishes with an earthy, bready note. Rye whiskey at its finest.
Scotch aficionados, meet your American match made in heaven.
A cool fact: The master distiller, Dave Pickerell, used to work as a master distiller at Maker's Mark.
A cask strength sherried scotch that delivers on the nice toffee and chocolate notes that we expect from a sherried cask but also it's surprisingly smooth and elegant for its high ABV. A really special dram for those who love sherried whisky.
Classic Islay peated malt that is non-chill filtered and has a higher than normal ABV for a standard expression. The result is a beautifully rich and peaty dram that has a nice sweetness of the front end to balance the overall headiness.
