WhistlePig Farmstock Crop 00275cl / 43%
- Straight Rye Whiskey
The second Farmstock release from WhistlePig, the second step on the journey to producing a whiskey entirely grown, distilled and matured on site at the eponymous farm. This release is a vatting of 32% WhistlePig farm rye whiskey aged for 2-2.5 years, 45% MGPI rye aged for 5-6 years and 23% Alberta Distillers Canadian rye aged for 10 years. The WhistlePig rye gives a fresh and spicy kick to the older whiskey, which plays a supporting role, providing an elegant backdrop for the zesty spirit to dance on.
