Whiskey Network Review #327 | /r/Bourbon Review #180 – WhistlePig Single Barrel 10yr Cask Strength Rye K&L Exclusive Pick, 113.2pf | 56.6% ABV

Bottler: WhistlePig (Vermont)

Mash: 100% Rye

ABV: 56.6% ABV | 113.2pf

Age: 10 Years

Pick: K&L Wine Merchants

Barrel: 15-59

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!

Rank: 8
