Whistlepig 10-Year

Whistlepig 10

Whistlepig discovered some aged rye stocks in Canada, moved them to Vermont and aged them on site in Vermont Oak Barrels. They are currently producing their own distillate, but obviously that doesn’t give us the current 10 year on display here. The MSRP of $70 is a bit steep, and don’t get me started on the outrageous limited edition prices.

Price: $70 for 750ml

Color: Orangish Amber

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

Nose: Vanilla, orange, rye grain, cinnamon, cedarwood, and leather.

Taste: Chili pepper, tobacco, cinnamon, full bodied and spicy. Caramel, oak, and a touch of mint.

Finish: Dry, warm and a long length. Flavors of custard, clove, and vanilla

Thoughts: I really didn’t want to like this as much as I do, because it costs even more than Pikesville, which is my go to. But the flavors are exactly on point for what I like in a rye, and the body excellent. My wallet hates me.
