WhistlePig 10yr Rye Whiskey Bounty Hunter Exclusive

Avg. Rating: 
(1)

We jumped at the chance to grab a barrel of this great stuff for ourselves! We tasted through more than a dozen selections and "Barrel #100" leaped ahead of the pack. Rich, deep rye spices and just the right kiss of oak greet your senses. Hints of vanilla, almond and grain that develop through the palate and finish will make you squeal with delight. This is as exciting a glass of whiskey as we've had all year.

Whistle Pig represents everything we're looking for in a great whiskey; rarity, pedigree, and a great story. Located on one of the oldest farms in Vermont dating back to the early 19th-Century, this 500-acre property was once a thriving epicenter for grist and lumber. The farm remained in operation until 2006, when it was purchased by founder Raj Peter Bhakta and transformed into a rye farm and distillery. Bhakta's plan was to create a single estate rye whiskey that would stand as a model for fully sustainable agriculture in the US. A lofty goal that would require the help Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, who after a long career with Maker's Mark wanted to create his magnum opus. This combination of passion, experience, and just the right amount of insanity proved the perfect combination for driving success.

    I did a blind tasting of three different whisky's. The bartender lined them up in order of his preference from good to great. This one was in the great position. Both me and my drinking partner thought it was a fine bourbon. It has way more complexity than any rye I've had (and I've had some good ones). The bottle we had started with a light spice, had a nice red fruit in the middle and finished with delicate notes of coffee. Honestly, if you're looking for hardcore rye flavor, this isn't it. What you have here is an excellent whiskey of any grain.
