Whistle Pig Farmstock Rye Whiskey (750ml) - Crop No.003
The third release of the distillery's annual 'Triple Terroir' Whiskey is created from home grown rye, distilled and proofed with local water and aged in the distillery's custom made Vermont white oak barrels. Crop No.003 is also something of a landmark, being the first ever majority Whistle Pig whiskey, comprised of 52% three year old Rye, blended with sourced whiskies. More details below.
Other reviews... A puzzling whiskey, with golden raisin and treacle aromas, as well as cereal and butternut squash. The palate is dry and herbal, with faint hints of vinous fruit, herbs and spices, and plenty of oak. It finishes short, with almond, chocolate, and amaro-like herbaceousness. The third batch of FarmStock, this includes 52% WhistlePig’s own 3 year old rye, along with 31% 6 year old rye from MGP and 17% 10 year old rye from Alberta Distillers.
