r/Bourbon 2021 Whistle Pig Single Barrel Cask Strength Rye “Side of Bacon”
Year: 2021 by t8ke
Info: Barrel #119568, Alberta Rye, Barreled 9.28.2010
Retailer: Maison Corbeaux
Notes: Notably more caramel forward at first on the nose. Tons of praline, caramel, cream, honey, bold rye spice. Punchy rye backbone sets in with savory barrel char, tannin and this rich almost salinity. Definitely a more savory rye, especially from Alberta, but lots of complexity that pairs really well with the sweet, sweet nature of the fruitier Pancake Breakfast barrel.
