Whistlepig Straight Rye Whiskey [Gear Patrol]

Whistle-Pig-Rye-Gear-Patrol.jpgWe've had the Canada-via-Vermont rye whiskey called Whistlepig on our to-do list for months, but this review from the guys over at Gear Patrol has definitely stepped up our interest a notch. The price tag - similar to a high-end bottle of scotch - was part of the reason for our dragging our feet, but it looks like we're going to have to get ourselves a bottle of it for Christmas. Thanks, us!

This 100-proof treat is meant to be savored. Aging for 10 years in oak mellows the rye's pepperiness and also imparts a healthy dose of vanilla reminiscent of bourbon; however, the noticeable absence of corn radically changes Whistlepig's tasting notes.

Read the full write up from Gear Patrol, and if you're anything like us, find out where you can get it (apparently six states at the moment) on the Whistlepig website.
