Unveiled in mid-2015, the WhistlePig Old World is an exciting 12 year old straight rye whiskey which has been finished in a selection of wine casks - 63% Madeira, 30% Sauternes and 7% Port. It's inspired by the techniques of the 'old world', with a particular reverence for Scotch whisky...
American Rye styled by Old World sensibilities.
This 86-proof 12-year-old Rye Whiskey is the greater sum of three finishes, each with their own distinctive flavor profiles. After maturing for over a decade in New American Oak, spirit is divvied into one of three directions. Port pipes (7%), French Sauternes barrels (30%) and Madeira casks (63%) all play a part. Our Master Blender calls in these components around the quintessential boldness of American rye—just as a conductor arranges a symphony. An orchestra of flavor to dazzle the senses.
