This expression takes its inspiration from the famous Portuguese explorer. The rye whiskey is aged 17 years with two consecutive rounds of finishing. Rare Spanish oak staves and South American teakwood add complexity to the unique barrel strength-proof spirit.
Nose / Aroma / Smell
This exemplary dram explodes with aromas of creamy vanilla and maple over cinnamon, marzipan, and fresh espresso.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate rises from the foundational aroma with tons of baking spices, cherry cordials, toasted wood, and sage.
The finish lasts into next week with more mouth-watering spices and a savory warmth.
Bottle Size: 750ml
In 2007, a band of dedicated Rye enthusiasts bought the farm — they actually purchased a plot of land in Vermont lovingly named WhistlePig Farm. They teamed up with master distiller Dave Pickerell — formerly of Maker’s Mark — to bring genuine Rye Whiskey back to the forefront of American Whiskies. It took a lot of time, patience, experimentation, and reinvestment, but they have grown to produce five award-winning core products and have experimented with a variety of finished wood special edition Whiskies too.
