Aged a minimum of 10 years, WhistlePig Barrel Strength "DrinkUpNY Single Barrel" Straight Rye Whiskey is a 115.9 proof, 57.95% ABV rye whiskey hand bottled on a former dairy farm in Shoreham, Vermont. Founded in 2010, the WhistlePig Farm Distillery operates under the watchful eyes of Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, who formerly spent 14 years as the Master Distiller at Maker's Mark, and its proprietor Raj Peter Bhakta, who plans to grow organic rye on the farm for use in future batches.
WhistlePig Barrel Strength "DrinkUpNY Single Barrel" Straight Rye Whiskey is hand selected by our buyers after tasting an array of barrel samples that were aged for at least 10 years. The cask number for this barrel strength whiskey is BB1-8-D, offering bold and complex aromas of orange peel, ginger, nutmeg, clove and other baking spices which are complemented by notes of charred oak, caramel, and a hint of gingerbread. Full-bodied and rich on the palate, sweet, warming notes of caramel and vanilla are complemented by rye spice, oak and mint flavors, which blend seamlessly into butterscotch and dark chocolate on the long, pleasant finish.
