Whistle Pig 12 Year Old – Straight Rye – Slight label damage (distillery issue)


Released in late June 2015, Whistle Pig Old World is the last in a series beginning in Spring 2014, during which the Indiana based NDP (Non Distiller Producer) finished 12-year-old-rye in Sauternes, Madeira and Port barrels respectively, each released as a limited edition. This bottling is a blend of all three cask types, being 30% Sauternes, 63% Madeira and 7% Port barrel matured rye. Produced from a mash of 95% rye and 5% malted barley, the name refers to “Old World” maturation techniques, particularly those used for single malt scotch whiskies, which inspired Master Distiller, Dave Pickerell to experiment with his own whiskey stocks.
