WhistlePig has launched their 15-Year-Old rye whiskey which has been aged 15 years before being finished in Vermont White Oak. Kentucky-bred oak trees – where most whiskey is aged – have fat wood rings, whereas Vermont oaks have tight wood rings, allowing more flavor and depth into the whiskey.

The WhistlePig 15-Year-Old features a mash of 100% rye and is bottled at 46% alcohol content [92 proof]. The whiskey is aged in three separate whiskey barrels: #3 Charred New American Oak, used bourbon barrels, and finished for six months in custom #4 charred Vermont White Oak. The WhistlePig 15-Year-Old Rye Whiskey is said to deliver notes of caramel, butterscotch and spice.

The WhistlePig 15-Year-Old is a limited release and will only be available in select markets.
