WhistlePig 12 Beast Master Edition is a single-cask WhistlePig by another name.

In 2007, a band of dedicated Rye enthusiasts bought the farm — they actually purchased a plot of land in Vermont lovingly named WhistlePig Farm. 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 Whiskies too.

As they have been growing thier business, WhistlePig team has been focused on the end goal of achieving true estate production — meaning EVERTHING is done on site, from growing the grain and distilling the spirit to aging the Whiskey and bottling it for sale. WhistlePig Farmstock is the realization of that dream. They still need to get production up to fill demand, but this release is a milestone because the last missing piece — using his own grain — is realized in this bottle. And it tastes mighty fine indeed. Cheers to you WhistlePig!

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

Ratings & Reviews
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Amazing. Very smooth and amazing flavor. The aging of the rye takes the harshness out of the rye for a perfect drink.
 
Johnny
Johnny,
Not as good as the 10 year but has a nice smooth flavor with just a little bite.
 
Frank
Frank,
Very enjoyable with a clean finish. Great for a slow sip on a warm evening. Neat and chilled enhances the floral finish without watering down the body of the beverage.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Pleasantly smooth, rich notes of bourbon, prefer drinking neat
 
Ivan
Ivan,
Just had it neat at an open bar dinner hosted by a sales rep. I enjoyed it. Starts smooth and caramel with a strong alcohol bite and a lingering rye finish. May have to get a bottle.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
A bit harsh on the smooth scale. Not anywhere near as good as the 10 year.
 
Ron

Hint of licorice and grapefruit on the nose. Nice spicy finish. Collect 1 bottle.
