Review #327 – WhistlePig Single Barrel 10yr Cask Strength Rye K&L Exclusive Pick
Whiskey Network Review #327 | /r/Bourbon Review #180 – WhistlePig Single Barrel 10yr Cask Strength Rye K&L Exclusive Pick, 113.2pf | 56.6% ABV
Distiller: Alberta (Canada)
Bottler: WhistlePig (Vermont)
Mash: 100% Rye
ABV: 56.6% ABV | 113.2pf
Age: 10 Years
Pick: K&L Wine Merchants
Source: Bottle, Purchased
Nose: Molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon, clove all spice. Like a saturday morning breakfast bomb
Taste: Thick, oily, clove, spice, massive maple and brown sugar. Heat is intensely subdued. Super sweet and some nice rye funk in the rear
Finish: Long, sweet, rich. Not too hot. Complex
Overall: This is the best thing going in rye right now. I’m giving this a Rank 8. This is a fantastic rye with flavors I love and complexity that is only typically seen in much more expensive ryes. I think this hits up there with THH for me, so I’m going to score it the same. And thankfully, you can actually find this in stores. Imagine that. This is what I drink when I want a nice bruiser rye but don’t want to break out the diminishing last drops of my THH. I enjoy it immensely.
Thanks for reading!
