WhistlePig 12 Year Whiskey Rye is an 86-proof 12-year-old Rye Whiskey, which is the greater sum of three finishes, each with their own distinctive flavor profiles. After maturing for over a decade in New American Oak, spirit is divvied into one of three directions. Port pipes (7%), French Sauternes barrels (30%) and Madeira casks (63%) all play a part. Our Master Blender calls in these components around the quintessential boldness of American rye—just as a conductor arranges a symphony. An orchestra of flavor to dazzle the senses.
