WhistlePig 15 Year Vermont Estate Oak Rye Whiskey
At 92 proof & their oldest whiskey, this is the first WhistlePig product finished in Vermont Estate Oak harvested right from the farm. Vermont oak has more rings than the standard oak used in whiskey barrels, and each ring is an opportunity to impart more flavor and depth in the whiskey. With a score of 97 points from Wine Enthusiast and perfected over 15 years, this is a pure expression of Vermont’s best.
The nose is deep and rich, dominated by caramel, vanilla, and oak, with hints of allspice and burnt orange. The palate is warm, rich, and slightly creamy. Loads of butterscotch and baking spice with leather and a hint of tobacco. An ultra-long and rich finish, warm, and inviting.
