Released in 2016, this is the 15 year old straight rye whiskey from WhistlePig in Vermont – their oldest release so far! Interestingly, their 15 year old expression has enjoyed a finishing period in Vermont oak barrels which have been given a long toast and heavy char. Due to shorter growing seasons and harsh winters, Vermont oak has a tight grain pattern, which can affect the flavour profile of the whiskey – there’s some tree terroir afoot here!
Nose: Bursts of peppery rye, alongside buttery biscuits and toasted nuts.
Palate: Toffee and butterscotch, a little bit of dark chocolate too. Soft spices grow and grow. A touch of intense oak warmth.
Finish: There’s still a good helping of exotic spice on the finish, with a lingering caramel sweetness.
