  • 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, I've 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 plasuibly 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:

    Rich toffee, pungent pipe tobacco, buttered popcorn, rich baked bread, light ethanol, apple and pear

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel, mild heat, apples and pears. Clove and rye spice, cracked pepper, earthy tobacco. Light melon.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium length, honey, clove, apples and pears, light bubblegum note. Banana bread. Waffle cone.

  • Overall:

    Enjoyable, sort of all over the place, but a damn solid rye.

  • Score:

    6
