WhistlePig Straight Rye Whiskey
WhistlePig Straight Rye Whiskey is aged in American oak barrels for a minimum of 10 years and is made from 100 percent rye. The golden amber-colored whiskey features notes of allspice, ginger, nutmeg, clove, orange peel and anise, which complement the woody notes of charred oak. There are hints of caramel and honey, and the complex and full-bodied flavors taste warm, sweet and floral on the palate. Hints of caramel and vanilla are followed by rye-spice and mint flavors with strong butterscotch and dark chocolate undertones. The whiskey has a warm, long, crisp and creamy finish, with a butterscotch finish. www.whistlepigwhiskey.com.
