I have good news and bad news about the Whistle Pig 15-year American Rye. The good news is that this is one of the highest scored Ryes ever made having earned a massive 97-point score from Wine Enthusiast. But as I’m sure you could’ve guessed, the bad news is that I have only six bottles to sell. Don’t miss out on a great addition to any liquor cabinet, and an even better bottle for the private collection.
One of WhistlePig’s oldest whiskeys, the Estate Oak Rye is one of the absolute top dogs for Rye fans. It takes its name from our Vermont Estate Oak, where it finishes its 15-year life. It’s harvested sustainably by the nearly 600-acre farm and the wood has more rings, bringing even more flavor to the barrel than the regular American Oak barrels. With a custom char to the barrels, this is the perfect combination of Rye spice, smoky profile and vanilla and Sherry notes that make this a seamless blend and one of the highest quality examples made anywhere.

A complex and subtle scent of honey, vanilla, and faint clover notes. The flavors reflect caramel, burnt orange and a whisper of smoke. The nose is rich and enticing. This is a big, mouth-coating rye that finishes long and creamy, but never loses the kick of the rye itself.
