WhistlePig 15 Year Rye Whiskey

 

Whiskey | 46% ABV

Commercial Description:
WhistlePig 15 Year Rye Whiskey is the culmination of years of patience – a liquid chosen from our finest stocks to be aged for more than a decade. The first WhistlePig product aged in Vermont Estate Oak harvested right from their farm. It is their oldest whiskey. The harsh winters and short growing seasons in Vermont bestow a tight grain pattern upon our trees. Kentucky oak trees are fat. Vermont ones are tight. Tight wood delivers more flavor and depth. The new Vermont Oak barrels receive a long toast and heavy char designed to draw out a rich sweetness to complement the natural spice of aged rye. The final product mixes rye spice with wood sugar, earthy oakiness and lush citrus notes, all wrapped in a velvety smoothness unique to the finest aged spirits. This Rye has been waiting for 15 years to reach your lips, and time is something that no amount of money can buy. Just remember – tight is better than fat. And old is better than young. In whiskey at least.

 

 

 

WhistlePig 10 Year Straight Rye Whiskey

 

Whiskey | 50% ABV

Commercial Description:
WhistlePig Rye 10 Year is a 100 proof &100 percent rye whiskey, aged for at least ten years through a unique double barrel process. Warm wooden notes from the 3 year oak bourbon cask aging give way to hints of vanilla, caramel, dried orange peel, cinnamon, allspice and clove. This whiskey has an incredible full body, something younger bottles cannot accomplish. It is rich and mouth coating, offering caramel and vanilla flavors to stand up to the classic rye spiciness that emerges on the mid palate. Later, dark chocolate and peppermint notes appear. The finish is an almost creamy flavor, leaving notes of vanilla, orange, and caramel, before hints of dark chocolate linger on the tongue.

 

 

 

W.L. Weller Special Reserve Bourbon Whiskey

 

Whiskey | 45% ABV

Commercial Description:
The Original Wheated Bourbon Whiskey features an exceptionally smooth taste, substituting wheat for rye grain. Bottled at 90 proof, known as Kentucky proof, this bourbon has a soft flavor perfect for sipping.

 

 

John E. Fitzgerald Larceny Bourbon

 

Whiskey | 46% ABV

Commercial Description:
This is an impressive release from Heaven Hill at this price point. First off – the proof is right on for an easy sipping and inexpensive wheated bourbon. They’ve left the flavor here without compromising drinkability. Because of the price, the natural comparison is against Maker’s Mark, but to me this compares closer in flavor profile with Maker’s 46. The healthy doses of cinnamon and wood spice have made for a much more interesting sip than the standard Maker’s.
