  • Intro:

    WhistlePig is a hybrid spirits operation in Vermont that has previously staked its claim on importing rye whiskey from Alberta to age and bottle in Vermont. In the past, Ive bumped into some of their single barrel ryes and found them really enjoyable. In recent months, WhistlePig has made a switch to digging up some older MGP rye stock for their 10 year old single barrel barrel proof rye, as well. As a result, I have set out to try 25 WhistlePig single barrel ryes to get a lay of the land. They were arranged, poured and blinded by a generous fellow who loves rye as much (or very plausibly more so) than I do. There are one or two non-WhistlePig ryes in here, also, so the stakes are pretty high. All blind, all in. Welcome to the 2019 Ryenaissance.

  • Nose:

    Faint ethanol. Really nice. Pine. Salted caramel. Werthers caramel. Fresh cedar.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Lots of sweetness here. Lovely salted caramel note. Deep fruits, more like orange, figs, dates. Pipe tobacco. Ethanol sneaks up and so does powerful pepper and clove.

  • Finish:

    Long, rich, filled with caramels, oak, pipe tobacco, pepper and a delightful woody presence. Savory and rich. Almost some dusty notes here.

  • Overall:

    Delicious. Different. Off profile but loaded with notes I enjoy.

  • Score:

    7
