In the spring of 2014, Master Distiller Dave Pickerell began a unique experiment on the WhistlePig Farm. After studying the best techniques of the Old World - particularly Scotch whiskies - Dave and the WhistlePig team paired bonds of 12-year-old rye with premium European oak casks - Madeira, Sauternes, Port, Cognac, and Sherry. After a series of single finish releases and extensive industry feedback, the 12 Year Old World is the product of a carefully selected marriage of three finishes that highlights their distinctive flavors to create an exceptionally balanced spirit. Then WhistlePig challenged us with an offer we couldn't refuse: The team at Liquorama had 3 barrels of Whistle Pig aged in a Sauternes, Port and Madeira barrels respectively. Our task was to figure out what what percentages of each were needed to make the "perfect" blended WhistlePig barrel. Long and short of the story, we decided on 44% Sauternes, 36% Madeira and 20% Port and have created an Exclusive bottle of WhistlePig for you to enjoy with us!
