WhistlePig 15 is a creamy, super-flavorful example of Rye American Rye know-how.

WhistlePig began in 2017 when a band of dedicated Rye enthusiasts transforms an old dairy farm in Vermont in to a Whiskey-making paradise. They teamed up with master distiller Dave Pickerell — formerly of Maker’s Mark — to bring genuine Rye Whiskey back to the forefront of American Whiskies. It took a lot of time, patience, experimentation, and reinvestment, but they have grown to produce five award-winning core products and have experimented with a variety of finished wood special edition Whiskeys too.

WhistlePig 15YO is the oldest spirit made by Whistle Pig so far. In a word, it’s delightful. Seriously … even the reviewers at Forbes said exactly that. If you need more convincing, Wine Enthusiast gave it 97 points — and when wine drinkers give you a score like that it’s saying something. And this exceptional Rye Whiskey celebrates its quinceañera (fifteenth year) in native, estate-grown Vermont Oak and is bottled at a spot-on perfect 46% ABV.

Smartass corner: 
Why do they use Vermont Oak? Well, not only is it a local wood growing natively on the Whistle Pig Estate, but it has tighter, slower-growing rings that they believe imparts more flavor per barrel.

Ryan
Ryan,
I liked this, but at the price point not something I would reach for. Certainly a lot of spice and an oakiness befitting it’s age. Lingering pleasant warmth. Happy to have tried it, but will try something else next time.

Had this at a tasting in NH, very very good, good amount of spice yet still very smooth, a little pricey but is worth it

Robyn,
I am not a Rye Whiskey drinker, but I did find this bottle quite good. It was very smooth, and I would definitely share with other Whiskey lovers.
