Whistle Pig "Farmstock" Rye Crop No. 002 Whiskey (750ml)

 This is a limited edition blend of straight ryes, including 32% estate-grown Vermont rye aged two years, 45% Indiana rye aged six years and 23% Canada rye, aged 10 years. The golden whiskey has an oaky, spicy scent, with a hint of peach. The bold palate resounds with spice and concentrated vanilla, finishing long and drying. *Top 100 Spirits of 2018* (KN)  (11/2018)

Whisky Advocate

 Whistle Pig raised the share of its own 2 year old rye from 20 percent to 32 percent in this second Farmstock release, balancing it against 6 and 10 year old sourced ryes, like in the 001 release. Fresh oak mixes with vanilla, orange peel, and pepper on the nose, leading to a palate of vanilla and butterscotch. Citrus emerges with water. Pepper notes return on the finish, along with chocolate and caramel. There’s youthfulness here, but also potential. (DF, Fall 2018)

K&L Notes

About a third of the whiskey in this blend is produced with rye from Whistle Pig's own farm and aged in custom-built Vermont White Oak barrels. The distiller's notes: "Delicate fruitiness gives way to a full-bodied burst of spice, rounded by notes of allspice and cinnamon and balanced with a pleasant dryness. White pepper and oak spice leave a light and surprisingly lengthy finish."

The 2nd annual Farmstock release is the best way to get a shot at what the Whistle Pig of the future will taste like. This year it contains 32% of their Vermont distillate and it's a delicious, spicy, full bodied rye that comes with the big old punch of sweet vanilla that you already know and love. If you loved the first Farmstock, you'll definitely be floored by this release!

Country:

Canada

- Canada's thriving wine industry is concentrated in the four provinces of Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec and Nova Scotia. Because of the extreme climates of these Region, grapes tend to be grown near large bodies of water, which balance the effects of the severe winters. For the same reason, snow-resistant North American grape varieties like Concord and Niagara, the French Vidal Blanc, Seyval Blanc and Baco Noir are grown in Canada. Additionally, Riesling, Chardonnay and Merlot are becoming more popular. The Canadian wine industry is most recognized as the largest producer of Icewine in the world.
