Fortune, superb taste, and hustle lead to the discovery of aged Rye Whiskey stocks in Alberta, Canada where this Rye was rescued from its cringeworthy misuse as a blending whiskey. This is 100 proof (50% abv) but drinks like it is 86 proof (43% abv) - a sure sign of smoothness and quality. Made from 100% Rye.
The 10 year old rye has herbal aromas with a touch of peppermint and vanilla. The palate is warm, spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and sweet with muscovado sugar and dark chocolate.
Founded in 2008, WhistlePig is now the most awarded Rye Whiskey maker in the world. They live by a simple ethos: protect what makes Rye Whiskey great, toss out the rest, and then innovate to make it better. Their remote 500 acre hard-working farm in bucolic Shoreham, Vermont, is the perfect place to perfect their experiments with blending and finishing, ultimately leading to a portfolio of deeply complex ultra-aged Rye Whiskeys. In 2017 they were honored to be awarded with the coveted ‘Best In Show Whiskey’ title from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
