WhistlePig Old World Series Madeira Finish 12 Year
Rye — Indiana (bottled in Vermont), USA
Tasted May 26, 2022
In taking the time to truly enjoy the nose on this 95% rye whiskey you can't help but immediately notice the oak from the 12 year barrel aging. The toasted oak also brings vanilla and caramel. Further nosing reveals an undercurrent of dark fruits compliments of the triple wine casks. Upon tasting you discover right up front the spiciness of the rye and the toastiness of the oak. The dual kick gradually fades as the sweet fruit lingers on the palate. Long after the last taste a mild spicy pepperiness remains.
