WhistlePig, 10 Year Old Rye Whiskey
WhistlePig was released in the summer of 2010 A 100-proof, 100% rye grain straight rye whiskey, aged for at least ten years through a unique double-barrel process - it spends 5 years in first fill white american oak barrels and another 5 years in used bourbon barrels. WhistlePig 100 hits the sweet spot with more rye, all the proof, and the perfect age. Wood on the nose with hints of vanilla and caramel, dried orange peel, cinnamon, allspice and clove. Mouthcoating texture, aged whiskey character with caramel and vanilla flavours and rye spiceness. Dark chocolate, peppermint followed by oranges, vanilla, allspice, finishing with a hint of dark chocolate and butterscotch.
The only 100% aged rye. Most people stop at 95%, even getting there presents problems according to Master Distiller Dave Pickerell Rye is the brat of whiskey grains -The higher the percent rye you get, the worse it behaves. It gets sticky. It foams. The fiber becomes a nuisance, the hassle of going from 95 % to 100% is unbelievable. But I wanted to be involved in that because rye whiskey is about taste. It is about full-bodied, unadulterated taste.

WhistlePig began when we purchased our farm in 2007. After a few years of deep consideration and personal reflection we committed ourselves to crafting the world’s finest and most interesting Rye Whiskeys. With help from Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, we discovered and purchased an incredible stock of 10 year old blending Whiskey in Canada that was being profoundly misused. That initial stock, for which we are forever grateful, is what kicked off our grand adventure.
