Committed to the Triple Terroir dream dram.

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 Whiskeys.

Founded in 2008, WhistlePig is now the most awarded Rye Whiskey maker in the world. They live by a simple ethos: protect what makes Rye Whiskey great, toss out the rest, and then innovate to make it better. They have grown to produce several award-winning core products. In 2017 WhistlePig won the coveted ‘Best In Show Whiskey’ title from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. They’ve also experimented with a variety of finished wood special edition Whiskeys.

As they have been growing their business, WhistlePig team has been focused on the end goal of achieving true tripple terroir — meaning everything 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 ever-evolving realization of that dream dram. With each release they add more and more of their estate Whiskey, meaning you get a taste of their Triple Terroir Whiskey. A sneak peak so to speak. In time FarmStock will be 100% Triple Terroir. We’ll cheer to that!

Rye Crop No. 002 marries the untamed contours and boldness of their estate Whiskey, which only youth can provide, with the richness of their best six year rye, topped off with the splendor of their 10 year Whiskey. Taste the future of WhistlePig Whiskey, you know you want to!

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, a “whistlepig,” groundhog, and woodchuck all refer to the same animal.

White pepper and oak spice leave a light and surprisingly lengthy finish.

Michael
Michael,
A great Rye! New to the WhistlePig label just because it's not available in the local area. Definitely one to keep..
 
Dale
Dale,
A mellow, easy sipper. Lightly oaked, and goes down smooth. Works well in cocktails or straight.
 
Lisa
Lisa,
Not smooth enough for the price
 
Zane
Zane,
Smooth, mellow on the palate. Rolls right in without burn or drama. It’s the finish on this one that makes it special. Butter cream, vanilla, a dusting of brown sugar, caramel, hint of spice cake. Really special finish that lingers beautifully and invites savoring. Would buy again.

Smooth. Great flavor.
 
Robert
Robert,
Smooth, sweet and full of caramel and vanilla. Definitely one of my favorites, but I like 'em like this. If you are looking for any other flavor profile, you'll be disappointed.
 
Doug
Doug,
Smooth and clean. Someone else described this one as “earthy,” which is probably the best description I can come up with, too. Maybe a bit grassy with a touch of fresh cut hay. Not really spicy, as ryes go.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Are ALL ryes like this?!? I'm still new to the tasting, but this rye is nuts! A vanilla scent in glass. Taste is almost buttery, glides around like air on my tongue with a hay-like white pepper flavor, leaving my mouth a little dry and needing more! Will have to keep this one in stock!
 
Joe
Joe,
Smooth. Goes down easily. Earthly but not peaty or strong flavor.
 
Bogan
Bogan,
I think the previous reviewer is being a little harsh in his criticism. You should not expect this to be as smooth as Whistle Pig 12. It is a blend of very young whiskey and mature whiskey. As a result, the variety of flavors are really on display. I enjoyed crop 1, but crop 2 is even better despite being less expensive. I am excited to try future years and see how this whiskey comes a long.
 
Mark
Mark,
I will preface this with I am a fan of Whistle Pig. The 12 year rye is probably my favorite rye. This however was a disappointment. This was not nearly as smooth as other whiskeys in their offering and the taste didn’t really stand out as well. For the price point (Flavia $72, my local liquor store $89), this is definitely not worth it. I feel that this should be around a $40-50 bottle and will end up being used for old fashions.
