Whistlepig Double Malt Rye 18 Year is named for the two malted grains used in its production: malted rye and malted barley. The mash bill for this rye whiskey is 79% rye, 15% malted rye, and 6% malted barley. It matured for 18 years and was bottled in Vermont at the WhistlePig estate distillery. Upon its announcement (August 2019), this is the brand's oldest whiskey to date. It is expected to be released in limited allocation each year.

Tasting Notes

"The nose brings together an interesting mix of lemon and tomato leaf that form a somewhat soapy aroma. That palate is light with vanilla and bread notes up front. Some pepper notes perk up right near the finish."
