WhistlePig 12yr 'Old World Series' Marriage
WhistlePig 12yr 'Old World Series' Marriage For Sale
WhistlePig 12yr 'Old World Series' Marriage Whiskey is the final result of an experiment beginning in spring 2014 during which Master Distiller Dave Pickerell finished 12-year-old-rye whiskey distilled at MGP in Indiana in former Sauternes, Madeira and Port barrels. Each one of these were first released as limited edition, single cask expressions and the 'Old World Series Marriage’ is a ‘marriage’ of those three - 63% Madeira, 30% Sauternes and 7% Port.
Dave began the experiment after studying the best techniques of the ‘Old World’ particularly Scotch and the process of ‘finishing’ in Madeira, Sauternes, Port, Cognac and Sherry barrels.
The 2015 San Francisco Spirits Competition Double Gold award winning ‘Old World Series’ unites the bold attributes of rye whiskey with the grace and elegance of the finest European casks, yielding an ultra-premium straight rye, distinctly American, but hearkening to its stately Old World roots.
