Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by WhistlePig, LLC ~ Whistle Pig

NOSE: Intensely aromatic, with cinnamon, maple, and toasted marshmallow that develops with time in the glass. PALATE: Tobacco, ginger, baking spices, and savory umami creating a remarkably rich, nuanced, and elegant profile lending to soft, sweet notes that further color the mosaic of flavor. FINISH: Incredibly long, with oak spice, char, and just a touch of smoke lingers as the finish fades.
