Whistle Pig Single Barrel Rye – Barrel #102113 (107.2 proof)
Nose: Red apple skins; sweet pastry; mixed herbs; rye grain; peppermint; cinnamon; faint chocolate; polished oak.
Palate: Creamy. Apple sauce; frosted breakfast pastry; herbal, with cinnamon gum with peppermint. A pleasant mouth-coating sweet chalkiness at the tail-end of the palate.
Finish: A bright “pop” of herbal spice with candied cinnamon; lingering dry oak and cinnamon.
Overall: Unmistakably rye. The brightness of the apple notes along with the rye herbal/spice notes play beautifully off the sweet frosting and candy notes. Quite well balanced without losing any of the character of sweetness, spice and age. A solid barrel for sure!
