    Product Description

    A long and patiently aged whiskey is only as good as the grain it's born from. WhistlePig 18-Year-Old Double Malt Straight Rye Whiskey is the oldest Rye, patiently mellowed for 18 years. Before industrial distillation, America's original farmers would malt a small portion of their grain to start fermentation, the essential step that turns water and Rye into glorious whiskey. Double Malt Rye is crafted from a mash bill of Rye, Malted Rye, and Malted Barley as a nod to the farmers. History aside, these grains unite in a show-stopping Rye Whiskey that stretches far and wide across the flavor spectrum. Its base of 79% Rye delivers bold, peppery spice, while 15% Malted Rye adds soft, floral, and earthy character. A final 6% malted barley brings rich, sweet, toasted notes.

    To take the expansive palate of WhistlePig Double Malt even further, the 4th Edition is finished in Spanish PX Sherry Casks. At once bold, complex, delicate, and elegant, WhistlePig 18 is the whiskey your most memorable toasts require and a gem on any bar. Each annual Edition of the Double Malt Rye is crowned with a bespoke glass topper handmade in Vermont.
