Whistlepig’s oldest ever Rye Whiskey! The WhistlePig 18 Year uses 79% Rye, 15% Malted Rye and 6% Malted Barley, distilled at Hiram Walker in Canada. A Limited liberate of 10000 bottles. Presented in a bespoke decanter, hand bottled at the WhistlePig farm. The decanters are topped with hand pressed glass stoppers, pressed by a 19th century glass pressing machine, one of the crucial last of its kind, and custom made.
This rare liberate is the results of a long-awaited experiment into how grain affects flavour early within the whiskey-making process, specifically, the bygone practice of malting rye. The Double Malt mash bill innovates on a traditional practice of malting a small component of the rye harvest, as done by farmer distillers before industrial whiskey-making processes were established.
Light and fruity with notes of red apple, lemongrass and spice at the nose. The palate is light and creamy with nutmeg, baking spice and herbal menthol coming through later. Warming and oaky at the finish.
Complex, harmonious and really well balanced.
