Beast Coast member-made roar of a Rye blend.

Back in August, Flaviar decided to find out once and for all: which Coast is the shizz?! East Coast and West Coast have been fighting each other in basketball and hip-hop (with various degree of violence), but which side of the States has the best palate? Time to exploit the good old rivalry and discover the truth!

When August began, WhistlePig went to the City of Angels and tested the Western Conference, and when the month came to an end, they did the same in the Empire State. This is how it went down: each of the two blending showdown events had five groups of five Flaviar members, their own blending station and through some Flaviar/WhistlePig guidance, they had to find the perfect blend of WP's Madeira, Sauternes, and Port finished Rye blend. Then, the members and both the Flaviar and the WhistlePig team voted on it and they found the winners.

And guess what? You get to try both of them. The eternal rivalry was a ruse to bring the best out of our master blenders and create something unique and grand. As we said, it's a blend of wonderful WP 12YO Rye Whiskeys, matured in American oak barrels, finished either in ex-Madeira, ex-Port or ex-Sauternes casks. The Spirit made in New York is 65% Madeira, 20% Sauternes and 15% Port. There were only three barrels, which means four bottles short of 400. And since we're so excited about this: it was blended exclusively by Flaviar members in New York! 

Remember... Tasting is believing!

Character Dogson
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
What the heck is a “whistle pig” anyway? Even though the label for Whistle Pig Rye is adorned with the sketch of a tuxedo-clad hog, “whistlepig,” groundhog, and woodchuck all refer to the same animal.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
