A Perfect Measure sample of a specially-selected whiskey bottled just for The Whisky Exchange. This 12-year-old Indiana-distilled rye whiskey was finished by WhistlePig in a cask made of south-American amburana wood. It's very rarely seen in whisky-making, more commonly being used to age cachaca, and it adds a unique fragrant character to the whiskey that makes it like nothing else. A must-try for all fans of American whiskey.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Fragrant wood, with coconut, tonka bean, glacé cherry, mint fondant, pine resin, fresh cut grass, butter-icing and sultana-studded fairy cakes all popping up. Cherry Bakewells, minty spongecakes and a freshly mown field.

    Palate: More coconut starts us off: Lamingtons and milk-chocolate Bounty bars. Mint and toasted spice builds through the centre, followed by creamy sweetness and a touch of balancing green grassiness. Darker notes of brown sugar and treacle hide at the bottom.

    Finish: Grassy notes fade to leave chocolate, creamy coffee, coconut and green apples.

    Comment: One of the most unique whiskies I have ever tried. The coconut and mint notes lead to a complex cavalcade of flavours, all wrapped around a delicately spiced rye-whiskey core.
