Tasting Notes

We've got four new single barrels of Whistle Pig 10 year coming in this winter and each cask is very small, thus very limited. This particular cask, our third in the series, comes in at over 117 proof and packs a big dollup of both sweet and savory spices in addition to all the rich oak flavors and vanilla. Only 130 bottles available from this unique barrel.

    These Whistle Pig cask strength barrels do it for me every single time, no matter how often I taste them or how many bottles I've already consumed. When you taste this recent 117.1 proof barrel that we just brought in, what will grab you the same way it grabbed me is the initial sweetness right off the bat, bolstered by the higher than normal ABV%. It lights up your tongue and primes it for the peppery rye spice that follows, giving you the vanilla and sweet oak before hammering home the herbaceous essence of the grain. I don't think I'll ever tire of buying these casks for K&L because I just about never tire of drinking them. There's no limit for how much cask strength 10 year old WP my mind can handle, only my liver can decide when enough is enough.

    This single barrel has a lot of offer to lovers of Rye whiskey. The nose is expressive and powerful and real inviting. In the mouth it is rich and concentrated with lush round flavors and a touch of spice.There is a long sweet finish.

    For those who have listened to me drone on and on about whiskey know that I almost never mention Whistle Pig, or if I do I do not tend to wax eloquent on them. I think many of their product is tasty, they are just never my top option especially when looking for the price for performance. I have to admit though that this barrel is making me question that stance. Yes, the bottle is still pricey, but if you are looking to splurge a little and not be disappointed in the slightest then holy hell is this bottle good! Immediate sweet vanilla and a touch of almond greet you friendly and welcoming before taking the palate to a subtle and persistent pepper and spice note. The proof hides so well that I did not even proof it down, which may be a little dangerous. The balance here between sweet and savory is fantastic and I doubt anyone who loves a sweeter American will be able to put down this bottle.
