Straight Rye Whiskey
Distillery Bottling 75cl / 46% / 92 Proof
This was the oldest release by WhistlePig back when it graced our palates in 2016, it is still as good as it was back then.
This rye has been aged in Vermont Oak casks harvested right from the WhistlePig Farm.
The main difference between Vermont Oak and standard American oak is the tightness of the wood rings and this helps impart more flavour and depth to the rye.
