Double Malt Rye Aged 18 Years
A long and patiently aged whiskey is only as good as the grain it’s born from.
With our oldest expression to date, we’re tapping into the time-honored techniques of the farmer distillers who invented the category in America’s early days.
WhistlePig Double Malt Rye is our oldest Rye, patiently mellowed for 18 years. Before industrial distillation, America’s original farmers would malt a small portion of their grain to start fermentation, the essential step that turns water and rye into glorious whiskey. As a nod to the farmers, Double Malt Rye is crafted from a mash bill of Rye, Malted Rye and Malted Barley. History aside, these grains unite in a show-stopping Rye Whiskey that stretches far and wide across the flavor spectrum. Its base of 79% Rye delivers bold, peppery spice, while 15% Malted Rye adds soft, floral and earthy character. A final 6% of malted barley brings rich, sweet, toasted notes.
To take the expansive palate of WhistlePig Double Malt even further the 4th Edition is finished in Spanish PX Sherry Casks. At once bold, complex, delicate and elegant, WhistlePig 18 is the whiskey that your most memorable toasts require, and a gem on any bar.
Each annual edition of our Double Malt Rye is crowned with a bespoke glass topper, handmade in Vermont.
Sweet and aromatic, with toasted oak, berries, and nutmeg.
Elegant and spicy, mildly fruity, and pleasantly floral. Vanilla and oak notes appear with time.
Wonderfully long, clean, and spicy finish.
