The end of December is a time to reflect on the year gone by. There is a lot to learn from the past, but we believe the best era for whiskey is in front of us.
At WhistlePig, we’re constantly pushing ourselves to try new things to unlock the potential of rye whiskey. We protect the traditions that makes rye great, toss out the rest, and embrace progress to make it even better.
WhistlePig 15 is our oldest product, and the first one finished in Vermont Estate Oak harvested right from the WhistlePig Farm in Shoreham, VT.
Vermont oak has more rings than the standard oak used for whiskey barrels, and each ring is an opportunity to impart more flavor and depth in the whiskey. With a score of 97 points from Wine Enthusiast, we are proud to offer this pure expression of Vermont’s best.
Deep and rich, with assertive butterscotch, baking spice and leather flavors, followed by a hint of tobacco, we recommend WhistlePig 15 on a crisp December evening with family, friends and a fine cigar.
Adorned with a handcrafted Danforth Pewter stopper, it also makes for a legendary host’s gift on New Years Eve. What better way to ring in 2019 than with a Rye Whiskey laid down near the start of the millennium?
