Whistle Pig 12 Year Old World Rye Whiskey (Madeira/Sauternes/Port Barrels) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

We at WhistlePig believe that progress is not achieved by the complacent, it is won by the bold and tenacious. With these tenets in mind, we proudly submit the fruit of our progressive endeavors, the 12 Year Old World Marriage.
In the spring of 2014, Master Distiller Dave Pickerell began a unique experiment on the WhistlePig Farm. After studying the best techniques of the Old World – particularly Scotch whiskies – Dave and the WhistlePig team paired bonds of 12-year-old rye with premium European oak casks – Madeira, Sauternes, Port, Cognac, and Sherry. After a series of single finish releases and extensive industry feedback, the 12 Year Old World is the product of a carefully selected marriage of three finishes that highlights their distinctive flavors to create an exceptionally balanced spirit. The 2015 San Francisco Spirits Competition Double Gold award winning Old World Series unites the bold attributes of rye whiskey with the grace and elegance of the finest European casks, yielding an ultra-premium straight rye, distinctly American, but hearkening to its stately Old World roots.
