The newest release from the WhistlePig Farm; 15-year-old, 100% rye, finished in Vermont Oak casks made from trees on the farm.

The harsh winters and short growing seasons of the Green Mountains bestow a tighter grain pattern upon these trees, imparting nuanced flavours into the whiskey.

After being milled, seasoned, and raised by some of the best coopers in America, the new barrel receives a long toast and heavy char designed to draw out a rich sweetness that complements the natural spice of aged rye.

The final product mingles rye spice with wood sugar, earthy oakiness and lush citrus notes, all wrapped in a velvet smoothness unique to the finest aged spirits.

Nose: Deep and rich, dominated by caramel, vanilla, and oak with hints of allspice and burnt orange.

Palate: Warm, rich, and slightly creamy. Loads of butterscotch and baking spice with leather and a hint of tobacco.

Finish: Ultra long and rich, warm, and inviting.
