A sweet and aromatic nose, with vanilla maraschino, roasted chestnuts and hints of cigar box. Flavours of oak, toffee and baking spices followed by soft notes of crème brulee and rose petals flow through the palate. The rye spices linger on the warming and appealing finish.
Vermont-based WhistlePig started in 2008, led by Dave Pickerell who was one of the greatest spirit blenders and indeed the “founding father” of craft distilling in America. He has done a great deal of work with huge brands like Maker’s Mark and huge bands, such as Metallica, for their own whiskies. The prestige American whiskey market has grown massively in the last ten years and WhistlePig have taken their place alongside the top luxury Scottish and Japanese brands, winning “Best Rye Whiskey in the World” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
