I just cracked into WhistlePig 21 Year Old The Beholden. Initial impressions: baked red apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, other baking spices, spearmint, rye spice, caramel, vanilla, and oak. This is like sipping on an apple pie. Very nice! Despite being finished in rye casks for only a few weeks, the rye influence comes through significantly, but in a way that compliments the underlying spirit. If you poured me this blind and told me it was some sort of older rye whiskey, I'd believe you. #whistlepig
