The Canadian American.
 
In 2007, aspiring Whiskey maker Raj Bhakta bought a farm in Vermont lovingly named Whistle Pig Farm. He teamed up with master distiller Dave Pickerell, formerly of Maker’s Mark, to bring genuine Rye Whiskey back to the forefront of American Whiskeys. What they do is outsource elements of their production to Canadian distillers, using grain produced by others. Their ultimate vision is to make Whistle Pig an “estate producer,” which means that all aspects of Whiskey production will be onsite, from growing the grain to bottling the spirit. But until then, this is the best choice of a Rye Whiskey hailing from Canada, and we can’t dispute that!
 
The first thing that you need to know is that Whistle Pig 10 Year Old is more than a regular straight Rye Whiskey. And by “more” we mean more Rye, more flavor, more spice, and more quality. You see, WhistlePig 10 Year Old is made 100% from Rye grain. Rye is the most temperamental of grains to distill, and the vast majority of Rye Whiskey on the market is actually a blend of at least 51% Rye, the rest being corn, barley, wheat, or whatever else might be laying around. This makes a BIG difference. 
 
Another big difference is that all of this Rye is aged for at least 10 years. Again, most of the Rye out there is aged two or three years. And all of that aging is in a combination of first-fill ex Bourbon casks and new charred American oak casks, then bottled at a whopping 50% ABV. In fact, don’t say that you have tasted Rye Whiskey until you have tasted WhistlePig 10 Year Old neat OR in your favorite cocktail.  
 
SmartAss Corner:
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, “whistle pig”, groundhog and woodchuck all refer to the same animal.

Antti,
I was able to enjoy a bottle of WhistlePig Straight Rye 10 Year Old Single Barrel Select, 2016; which was an outstanding, rich, whiskey with a birth spicy rye & caramelized oak, a spice filled life & a death of baked apples & clove.
Bryon
Bryon,
I'm sure it's good. I'm not a fan of the high rye content.

Spectacular rye and just as fine neat or in a strong Manhattan
Pete
Pete,
This was straight rye godliness! A bit rough to start, but 100% worth it. A nice warmth, and a lasting one at that. Will definitely be buying again.

Bold and delicious
Eric
Eric,
The smell alone sets it apart from most others in its category. Much more pleasant even on the first nosing than is normally expected from a typical dram. The taste leaves nothing truly unbalanced but the finish could use a little work.

did not like it at all. like drinking lighter fluid.
Dave
Dave,
Need a couple drops of water to mellow it out. Brings the heat, maybe too much at first. Good rye flavor.

Jon
Jon,
Oily on the glencairn glass... nose is spice and Carmel... The heat on the palate is a bit much...hate to water it down but needs a couple drops for certain to taste anything...after that, you can at least taste oak, a slight honey...and finish is a little bitter...6.2

This is the dram that turned me on to rye. Lots of caramel up front with a nice spicy finish. Makes a great Old Fashioned, but I prefer it neat.

Excellent rye. It's great if you let it breathe a few minutes but too long and I've found that it gets very intense.
