Review #1487 | Rye Review #644

Distiller: MGP

Bottler: Whistle Pig

Brand: Whistle Pig

Selection: N/A

ABV: 57.35% ABV

Age: 13.5 Years


Nose: Sweet cream, herbal spice, faint vegetal notes. Sweet honey, toffee, rye spice, brown sugar, coffee and nice oak.

Taste: Thin to medium mouth feel, growing thicker with time. Honey, toffee, lots of spice. Super spicy, loaded with clove, pepper, honey, toffee and some dirty tobacco. Yummy, metallic.

Finish: Long, powerful and sweet. Herbal, spicy, oaky.

Overall: This is a monster in so many ways. Though the finish lets it down slightly, the nose and palate come to play ball and there is no denying that.

Thanks for reading!
