Whistlepig Piggyback Legends: Alfa Romeo F1 Rye Details
Type & Region: Rye Whiskey, USA
Composition: 100% rye
Aged: 6 years
From the company website:
This Single Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of our signature PiggyBack 100% Rye.Like Alfa Romeo F1® Team Stake’s signature C43 racing vehicles, trial barrels were tested in the team’s wind tunnel in Switzerland before hitting the track. Select barrels then endured varying levels of G-Forces at the WhistlePig farm and distillery for the finishing touch, accelerating the interaction between the whiskey and the wood, staying true to the physical nature of Formula 1.

Whistlepig Piggyback Legends Alfa Romeo F1 Rye taste and aftertaste
I’ve unfortunately lost some Glencairn’s while in transit, and that made me very sad. So, I wised up and bought this Glencairn Travel Case that comes also comes with 2 glasses so I don’t need to worry so much about them breaking. I think it’s great, and I think you’ll love it too.Seriously, if you already have glasses, protect them.
Whistlepig Piggyback Legends Alfa Romeo F1 Rye Rating
- Provide a unique experience for someone who likes rye whiskey and wants to try something totally (and I really mean totally) different. The price seems reasonable too.
- For people / bars / restaurants that want to add a distinctive lychee flair to a cocktail. It can be “Asian-inspired” or not, I don’t care.
I have far too much fun writing about whiskey and singlehandedly running The Whiskey Shelf to bring you independent, honest, and useful reviews, comparisons, and more. I’m proudly Asian American and can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, and some Japanese.There are no sponsors, no media companies, and no nonsense. Support The Whiskey Shelf by Buying Me A Shot.
Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
