WhistlePig 'Old World Finish - Marriage' 12yr Rye Whiskey Vermont

(Net Item - no discounts apply)

When discussing the Old World Finish series, Pickerell likens the different finishes to the different sections of an orchestra. The 'marriage' bottling is a blend of all three individual Old World Finishes" (63% Madeira, 30% Sauternes, 7% Port) and is an explosive symphony of spice and richness. Cocoa, dried fruit and a distinct nuttiness tickle the nostrils after the initial heat waves off. On the palate it is rich, with marzipan, lemon citrus, rye and a hint of salted caramel. The finish is a masterful overture. The latest release of Whistlepig is one concert you'll keep going back to, again and again! "

Whistle Pig represents everything we're looking for in a great whiskey; rarity, pedigree, and a great story. Located on one of the oldest farms in Vermont dating back to the early 19th-Century, this 500-acre property was once a thriving epicenter for grist and lumber. The farm remained in operation until 2006, when it was purchased by founder Raj Peter Bhakta and transformed into a rye farm and distillery. Bhakta's plan was to create a single estate rye whiskey that would stand as a model for fully sustainable agriculture in the US. A lofty goal that would require the help Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, who after a long career with Maker's Mark wanted to create his magnum opus. This combination of passion, experience, and just the right amount of insanity proved the perfect combination for driving success.
