Whistle Pig 10 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey
Pairs with: Aged Gouda
Good for: Enjoying a bit of spice with your spirits on a winter evening
I am from: Shoreham, Vermont
The Story: Once the leading American spirit, Rye had faded from popularity after prohibition ...until a dedicated crew of Rye enthusiasts settled in an unlikely place, turning a historic dairy barn into a world class whiskey distillery in remote Shoreham, Vermont, where Rye has become the focus of Whistle Pig's output.
Why You'll Love Me: Allspice, orange peel, and charred oak on the nose gives way to a slightly sweet palate with caramel and vanilla. The finish is long, smooth, and slightly spicy, with notes of treacle, butterscotch and cinnamon.
