Whistlepig Straight Rye Whiskey [Gear Patrol]
We'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.
