Introducing Whistlepig Old World Rye Aged 12 Years
Introducing the Whistlepig Old World Rye Aged 12 Years, a true masterpiece that embodies the essence of craftsmanship and passion. This remarkable Rye Whiskey has a fascinating story behind it, one of entrepreneurship and determination. Originally discovered as an aged Rye Whiskey stock in Alberta, Canada, this spirit was saved from being used solely for blending purposes.

Hand-bottled with care, this Rye Whiskey stands as a testament to the dedication and hard work that went into its creation. When it comes to aroma, the Whistlepig Old World Rye Aged 12 Years offers a delightful bouquet. Allspice, orange peel, anise, oak, char, and caramel dance together, creating a captivating olfactory experience. With each sip, the whiskey unfolds on the palate, revealing a sweet and inviting character. Hints of caramel and vanilla grace the taste buds, followed by the distinct spiciness of rye and a refreshing touch of mint. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving behind warm notes of butterscotch and caramel. In addition to this impressive Rye Whiskey, Whistlepig also presents PiggyBack 100 Proof Bourbon, a six-year-old bourbon that brings a sweeter twist to their bold approach. Crafted from a high Corn mash bill, with a touch of Rye, this bourbon spent six years maturing in Char #3 barrels. The result is a beautifully balanced and flavorful offering that can be enjoyed neat or used as the base for classic cocktails. PiggyBack 100 Proof Bourbon truly shines when mixed into citrusy and sour drinks. Its sweeter profile adds depth and complexity to cocktails like the Barrel Aged Maple Bourbon Sour, elevating the overall taste experience.
