Wine Enthusiast, May 2020,
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.
Vermont-based WhistlePig started in 2008, led by Dave Pickerell who was one of the greatest spirit blenders and indeed the “founding father” of craft distilling in America. He has done a great deal of work with huge brands like Maker’s Mark and huge bands, such as Metallica, for their own whiskies. The prestige American whiskey market has grown massively in the last ten years and WhistlePig have taken their place alongside the top luxury Scottish and Japanese brands, winning “Best Rye Whiskey in the World” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
