Member Reviews and Ratings of WhistlePig Old World 12 Year Old Rye Whiskey
This whiskey is definitely an acquired taste...that I haven't yet developed. I am not a fan of aging whiskey in various wine barrels.
I want my whiskey to taste like whiskey and my wine etc.
I'm embarrassed to tell anyone how much I spent on this bottle.
Wish I could get my money back or a credit to spend toward something I would drink. Oh well, live and learn.
I wish I could buy your bottle!
Vanilla and spicy and everything nice. Excellent rye.
I only got to first try Whistle Pig within the last couple of years out here on the 9th island. It quickly became a staple that is complex yet easy to enjoy and not completely overbearing. When Old World appeared I quickly got my hands on a bottle and was certainly worth the 30 extra bucks.
Oh yes! This Rye is fantastic!
One of my favorite Rye Whiskeys, period. Not only incredibly smooth, but with a host of complex flavors from beginning to end. Now if only it wasn't so pricey...
One of the best Rye’s I’ve had to date
Our favorite...we tasted and immediately drove to liquor store to purchase our first bottle...we try to keep several bottles at home...hard to find and hate to run out.
Probably the best rye I ever had. Extremely smooth and easy to drink. Definitely worth the price. Will buy again.
I really like this. It's smooth and has a great taste. This may become one of my 'go-to' Ryes.
The only Rye I have ever liked! I wouldn’t mind having a bottle of this in my home bar!
This is one of the few whiskies that after one taste I immediately know I would like to buy multiple bottles. This is, by far, my favorite rye whiskey. Admittedly, I'm a beginner to rye, but I prefer this over most bourbons, and maybe even a few scotches (but if anyone asks I never said that last part.)
Smooth and flavorful!
I was curious if the taste warranted the price; it does. Fantastic.
Smooth in e front and a little spice in the back. VERY NICE!
Really excellent in every way. Interesting, flavorful, smooth. One of the best whiskey's I've had.
Sweet but not too sweet, nice spice, nice bloom, easy aftertaste. Overall an outstanding drink, a pleasure to drink neat or any other way you'd like.
This whiskey has a great nose! With a luxurious mouth feel. The alcohol content is just right to warm you up on a cold evening. It has notes of honey and oak on the front, with tobacco and spices on the after taste. It’s a little pricey for me, but a very nice bottle to have for a special occasion!
Excellent - typically direct people here after they've had Basil Haden's - again, to show them what just a little bit more money gets them in terms of quality.
Tasted for Robert Burns Night. Very smooth, slightly sweet, good sipper on the rocks.
It was ok. I expected more flavor. After setting out for about 20 min it does offer more flavor. Kinda like wine.
All time favorite!
ONE OF THE BEST RYES I HAVE TASTED
Love the mix of finishing barrels - really finishes great due to them, personally I think the Madeira is what sets it apart. Priced high but for those of us who enjoy a little sweeter different finish while still holding onto that rye up front then buy this and you won’t regret it lol
Another solid offering from WhistlePig.
Complex flavors, spice-kick, and is smooth with a nice prolong finish.
Very nice and smooth.. I will keep a bottle or two always!
It's a great whiskey and of course living in Vermont, I had to try it. I absolutely loved it but I don't think it's worth the price.
Superb rye for sipping - just enough spice up front
