WhistlePig was released in the summer of 2010 to great critical acclaim. It is a 100 proof straight rye whiskey aged for at least ten years through a unique double barrel process. The WhitslePig embodies the perfect combination of proof, purity and age-as it is highly regarded in all three categories. In summary, the whiskey is more rye, all the proof and is the perfect age.

"First, a warning: this is only for those who like their rye big and brawny. It starts off innocuously with a maple-syrup color, and a pretty, complex and subtle scent: honey, vanilla, a sight medicinal tinge and faint clover notes. It feels silky on the tongue and at first, the flavors reflect caramel, burnt orange and a whisper of smoke, but then a mouth-warming wave of tannic bite sweeps over all and lingers for a good long time. Straight up or on the rocks."
