Made from a distillery that has received national recognition with its flag ship Whistle Pig rye and other aged offerings, the PiggyBack is the newest offering in their high-quality lineup. Aged in char American oak barrels, the spirit is a blend of rye whiskey’s ranging from 5.5 - 8 years with an average age of 7 years. The agent in char American oak gives the spirit a spicy flavor with notes of
white pepper and clove; vanilla bean and jasmine follow.
On the palate, it’s thin, bracing and not without smoothness. The strong clove goes straight to the sinuses, with a clean dark cherry blooming on the mid-palate.
