K&L Notes

Whistle Pig Farm is a distillery in Shoreham, Vermont, run by David Pickerell, who served as master distiller at Maker's Mark for more than a decade. While most distilleries produce a white dog, or young whiskey to pay the bills while their good stuff ages, David went out and found a few barrels of something we'd actually want to drink. His new bottling of 100% Canadian-distilled rye aged in the American style is going to impress just about every whiskey fan out there. This rye is for big flavor hunters in the traditinon of Stagg, Van Winkle, and Handy. The nose is rich and enticing and the color of the whiskey itself is a dark amber that just looks like its loaded with caramel and barrel spice. The first sip lets you know that it actually is--this rye is brimming with vanilla, orange peel and other baking spices. This is a big, mouth-coating rye that finishes long and creamy, but never loses the kick of the rye itself. This is going to be huge, mark my words. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits buyer)

    Whistle Pig has become an industry leader in the rye resurgence. Maybe the first distillery to release a Canadian Straight Rye as a craft style brand. Now they're growing rye, having it contract distilled, and stocking their warehouses with farm to barrel rye whiskey of the highest order. Why they don't highlight how and where they get this wonderful whiskey is their marketing departments problem. My main concern is how it tastes. Brimming with rye spice, the 100 proof WP always keeps you on your toes. Not soft or overly sweet, it's one of these that really hits the balance between intensity of flavor and textural complexity. The overlying theme is bold dry rye flavors. Behind the earthy rye, some sweet floral and exotic herbal tones. A great example of why Canada (via Vermont?) is still the Rye capital of the Whisk(e)y world.
