WhistlePig FarmStock Rye Crop No. 001 For Sale
WhistlePig's Farmstock Rye Crop 001 is a blend of 31% 12-year-old MGP Indiana ‘95% rye’, 49% 5-year-old Alberta Distillers’ 100% Canadian Rye, further aged in WhistlePig farm oak barrels and 20% 1-year-old Vermont rye produced by master distiller Dave Pickerell on WhistlePig’s Farm.
The afore mentioned 20% portion of WhistlePig’s homegrown rye is described as "Triple Terroir" Rye, meaning: The grain was grown on site in Vermont. The oak barrels were constructed from oak grown in the WhistlePig farm forest. The water used to cut the whiskey came from their well. The crop of rye used was distilled and barreled shortly after the distillery was operational in 2015.
Tasting notes; Nose, orange zest, white chocolate, vanilla bean and fresh pear combine with a gentle Rye spice. Palate, delicate fruitiness gives way to a full-bodied burst of spice, rounded by notes of allspice and cinnamon and balanced with a pleasant dryness. Finish, white pepper and oak spice leave a light and surprisingly lengthy finish.
