WhistlePig - 10 Year Straight Rye Whiskey
Origins: Distilled and initially aged in Canada, before years of further ageing at WhistlePig farm in Vermont.
Distillery: WhistlePig Farm, Shoreman, VT
Approx. Cost: $79
Type: Straight Rye Whiskey
Bdawg says: The story behind this whikey per WhistlePig's website is they "discovered an aged Rye Whiskey stock in Alberta, Canada. We rescued the stock from misuse as a blending whiskey, aged it in new American Oak with a bourbon barrel finish, then hand-bottled this rye on its own."
This whiskey is medium copper/orange in color. The flavor is dark caramel, sweet candied citrus, toffee. toffee. Very smooth with a long warm finish.
I enjoyed this Rye with a Camacho Power Band Toro.
