Top reviews for WhistlePig FarmStock Rye Crop No. 002:

— Very nice Rye.

— After meeting the Whistlepig crew at Nantucket Wine Festival a few years back, I have been enamored. For me, Crop 002 gets the nod over Crop 001 but they are both delicious. Can't wait to try Crop 003!

— My favorite whistle pig out of the 10,12,15 lineup!

Beau,
I found this to be a solid rye. The youth is palatable, but the flavors are great! WP is my favorite stand-out brand, so I'm biased, but this one was pretty darn good.

Erwin,
Smells of rye and pear, spicy taste of rye and allspice, with a long smooth peppery finish. Good, but better ryes out there for the price.
 
Teresa
Teresa,
I think that most of the responses are spot on. Very good smooth taste with an impressive finish. Do like some of their others better, however.
 
Todd
Todd,
Agree with the prior post. The 10 year old is better at $40 less. Good but not as great as it should be.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Just good. Between the price and the name, you’ll be disappointed.

Johnny,
Not one of Whistlepig’s best but when compared to most other Rye, it gets a thumbs up or bottoms up I should say.

Frank,
Very nice, Not one of Whistlepig’s best but when compared to most other Rye, it’s a winner.

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.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
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.
 
Samuel
Samuel,
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.
