Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship WhistlePig 10 Year Old to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution, but until then, here are some alternatives:

WhistlePig 10YO Bottling Note

WhistlePig is a fantastic brand of straight rye whisk(e)y which is distilled and initially matured in Canada before being aged further, at the WhistlePig Farm in Vermont. This 10 year old straight rye is made with 100% rye and delivers a full-on flavour profile of clove, mint, barrel char, creamy caramels and butterscotch. Properly excellent stuff.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fresh peppermint and herbal thyme initially, with sweet vanilla and marzipan developing. Creamy butterscotch, raspberry jam and orange rind round it off.

Palate: Warm baking spices, nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice burst to life and are tempered by sweet muscovado sugar, bright oak and dark chocolate. Vanilla cola and caramel shortbread linger.

Finish: Medium-length, with warm rye spices, sweet malt and sour cherries.

WhistlePig 10 Year Old Reviews

Lighter & brighter

I really enjoy heavily caramelized tasting whiskeys, but sometimes I would love something a bit lighter & brighter - this hits you up front with a bit of cinnamon/clove and I pick up a bit of apple. Smooth - sweet - not at all syrupy. Thin bodied, but very nice.

sweetness dryness

Sweet rye on the nose. An intersesting balance of sweetness and dryness on the tongue. an enjoyable discovery.

re: truth in labeling

This is a response to those complaining about this being one thing and labeled as something else. The back label clearly says that it's a product of Canada and aged and bottled in VT. What's the problem? "You're told" that it's the same as Alberta Premium? Do you always believe what you're "told"? Even if this is the same distillate, if it's aged elsewhere, selected by someone else, it becomes something different. Aging is a very big part of flavor - not just individuality of each barrel but also where the barrel "lives" during the years. Their website also talks about "rescuing" this stock that was intended for blending. I see nothing unethical on the labels. And it's nice that at least some of this will be sipped from a Glencairn vs. being drowned in cola or used to melt ice. Canada does make some great rye. Hopefully this will help bring more pure rye to market and reduce prices and improve selection :)

Now, I do think this is a bit overpriced, but anyone is free to charge what they want and all are free to pay or not pay the asked price.

Excellent drink!

This is a Rye that doesn't need a mixer. The bold and rich nature of this dram is best appreciated by itself. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and oak appear first and then give way to the sweeter side of vanilla, caramel, honey and end with a nice long spiciness. Very good and enjoyable.

Who cares where it's from, the liquid is smooth, rich and balanced. Go-to-choice for an Old Fashioned anytime. There's a reason you don't get many 10 year aged ryes out there and it's because they can't do it as well as these guys.

Amazing but false advertised

DISCLAIMER: So by now I'm sure most of us know this is a Canadian Rye Whiskey labelled as a Vermont Whiskey (if not, now you know). For that reason I shall give it a low rating and advise everyone to search for a bottle of Alberta Premium as that is what i am told this is. Now that that is out of the way allow me to say how magnificently amazing this whiskey is! Old book, dirt, mint, herbs, spices, sweet spicy malts. It's an amazing thing. If you can get a bottle of Alberta premium, please do so. If not, grab this as I did.

Excellent Rye

This a very excellent rye. Very smooth with just right amount of bite.

I share the previous rater's outrage at the deception perpetrated by the makers of Whistle Pig as to where it was bottled. That kind of perfidy must not stand especially when it comes to fine whiskey. However, the simple fact remains that this is a really, really good whiskey.
