Notes from the Maker:
A blend of Whistlepig's bold and youthful estate whiskey, the richness of its best 5-6 year ryes, and the splendor of its 12 Year rye. Distilled from grain grown on WhistlePig's farm, water sourced from local springs, and wood harvested from Vermont forests. Hand-bottled on site in the WhistlePig barn.
NOSE: Abundant oak, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and mint.
PALATE: Caramel, cinnamon, and baking spices prevail with hints of citrus and stonefruit.
FINISH: Complex and enduring finish featuring winter fruit, dark chocolate, tobacco, butterscotch, and vanilla with classic rye spice.
93 Points & Top 100 2020 - Wine Enthusiast
"This rye is complex and palate-coating, especially with a dose of water added. Each sip opens with honey, coconut and white chocolate, and finishes long with delicate candied ginger, lemony acidity and white pepper."
"Bright and lively, with violets, plenty of fresh oak, and traces of mint and pine, leading to a palate of butterscotch, bright citrus, warming spice, and sweet vanilla with drying and dusty cocoa. There is a glimmer of youth, expected given that 20% of this blend is their own distillery-made rye, aged less than 2 years. It’s an exciting glimpse of what’s to come." - Whisky Advocate
