WhistlePig “RyederPig” Single Barrel Rye Aged 13 Years The Prime Barrel Pick #25
Our first WhistlepIg pick is age stated as 10 yo but contains 13-yo 100% Canadian Rye. The selection was a close call between itself and the 15 yo counterpart. Both are super tasty, but we felt that folks will get a lot more value with this pick vs, a $250 bottle of 15-year-old expression. The barrel char level is #3, and the expression comes in at 117.5 proof.
The sticker idea for the pick was provided by our Discord community and is a riff on a famous "Spiderpig" Simpson episode :)
Nose: Charred oak, raisins, stewed black cherries, dried tangerine peel, sage, black pepper, and hay
Palate: Smokey, bruised golden apple, rhubarb, caramel, and coffee
Finish: Lingering finish with notes of rye spice and cacao
