Whistlepig The Beholden 21 Year Single Malt Whiskey (750 ml)
Behold a whiskey of singular repute, sired from stills of storied past - absolved of obsolescence and conscripted to the quest for a new era of Single Malt. An advent of age unprecedented, indebted to its provenance, yet beholden only to the farthest bounds of creation.
The Béhôlden is the first-ever super-aged North American Single Malt, matured more than twice as long as any other on the continent. Aged for 21 long years in American Oak to add a rich maple and dried fruit to a bready, nutty base. Finished in WhistlePig Rye barrels bringing savory spice and subtle smoky notes, a game-changer for progressive palates.
With only 18 barrels in our Spring 2023 release this Single Barrel, bottled at 92 proof, is the holy grail of American Single Malt.
- Nose: Sweet fruit notes that leads into scents of cinnamon.
- Palate: Golden raisin, graham cracker and black cherry.
- Finish: Solid oak with maple and praline, and a hint of smoke on finish.
