Of the four exclusive Whistle Pig barrels we've purchased over the last four months, this 59.1% ABV expression is the biggest, boldest, and most complex. There's an equal amount of big sweet vanilla, dill, and peppery herbaceous character in full effect. The near 120 proof heat makes this whiskey a powerful beast to deal with and there's a lot to unlock with a few drops of water. There's a graham cracker finish that bolsters the clean rye flavor with beautiful balance, making this easily the best rye whiskey in the store right now. It's quite special.
