WhistlePig Double Malt Rye is the oldest Rye, patiently mellowed for 18 years. Before industrial distillation, America’s original farmers would malt a small portion of their grain to start fermentation, the essential step that turns water and rye into glorious whiskey.
To take the expansive palate of WhistlePig Double Malt even further the 4th Edition is finished in Spanish PX Sherry Casks. At once bold, complex, delicate and elegant, WhistlePig 18 is the whiskey that your most memorable toasts require, and a gem on any bar.
Its base of 79% Rye delivers bold, peppery spice, while 15% Malted Rye adds soft, floral and earthy character. A final 6% of malted barley brings rich, sweet, toasted notes.
NOSE: Sweet and aromatic, with toasted oak, berries, and nutmeg.
PALATE: Elegant and spicy, mildly fruity, and pleasantly floral. Vanilla and oak notes appear with time.
FINISH: Wonderfully long, clean, and spicy finish.
