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. The Farm Stock is truly a triple terroir, grain to glass whiskey as its crafted from the grain that they grew on their firm and aged in barrels made from their own land and finally the whiskey is proofed with water from their own well.
On the nose, WhistlePig "Farm Stock" Straight Rye Whiskey opens with abundant aromas of vanilla, caramel, nutmeg, clove and mint with underlying notes of oak and baking spice. Full-bodied and rich on the palate, sweet, warming aromas of caramel and vanilla are followed by rye spice, citrus and stonefruit flavors, which blend seamlessly into butterscotch, dark chocolate and tobacco on the complex and enduring finish.
