We’ve teamed up with WhistlePig and four award-winning chefs for an exclusive, flavorful, and fragrant Rye Whiskey.

In 2007, WhistlePig team bought the farm — actually a plot of land in Vermont lovingly named WhistlePig Farm. They teamed up with the late-great 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.

OK… here at Flaviar we are pretty excited about this. We’ve partnered with the good folks at WhistlePig to create this special edition Rye Whiskey. We brought four world-class, James Beard Nominated chefs to the WhistlePig farm and turned them loose among the casks to help us blend something new — Chefs Michael Gulotta from New Orleans; Jamie Malone from Minneapolis; David Posey from Chicago; and Justin Woodward from Portland. What they came up with is a rich blend of twelve year-old WhistlePig high Rye (95% Rye/5% malted barley) finished in a variety of Wine casks, including 40% Madeira, 30% Sherry, 20% Port, and 10% Sauternes.

Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that classically-trained chefs selected casks of Spirit finished in famous Wines from classic food pairings. And you will not be surprised just how great the flavor profile is. And this special release of WhistlePig X Flaviar Chef’s Blend 2019 is limited to 1000 bottles.

Smartass corner:
What the heck is a “whistle pig” anyway? Even though all WhistlePig Whiskey labels are adorned with the sketch of a tuxedo-clad hog, the words whistlepig, groundhog, and woodchuck all refer to the same animal.

What does WhistlePig X Flaviar Chef's Blend 2019 taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in WhistlePig X Flaviar Chef's Blend 2019 and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile is both powerful and a delicate dance of classic Rye spice, fig, apricot, warm woods, pipe tobacco, and orange blossom honey along with interesting notes of Grappa on the back palate.

Finish
The finish is long, fruity, spicy, and rich.

Bill,
I didn’t like it - very complex to rate - the favor seems all over the place - maybe it just my palate.

Mike,
Too mild for my Rye taste has some nice fruit and citrus with a slight red chili finish. For $130 you could have at least hit us with 90 proof. No wonder proof wasn’t in the description.
 
Ken
Ken,
Very nice, mildly sweet, finish. Just a delicious bottle of rye.

Doran,
This bottle is great! It’s infusions have opened my wife up to the idea of drinking more whiskey when prior she was off put by many other bottles. It’s smooth and pairs great with a variety of different foods.

Larry,
Oh so wonderful, a slightly peppery flavor with a soft carmel finish flavor. The best rye I have tried

Sean,
This is much better than I anticipated. Insanely smoooooooth. Get a spice & pepper nose when you pop and pour. And then a mild peppered-caramel (if there's such a thing) taste as it's going down. I might have to get another bottle before it's gone!
 
D
D,
This is phenomenal blend! I love Whistle Pig to begin with, and rye in general, but this is one of the best ryes I've ever had. Warm, Smooth peppery nose. Slight pepper and baking spice on the palate. Warm, spicy subtle medium-length finish. So Good!!
