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

Not so good

I don’t like this. At all. It’s unique, in that it tastes like a sour whicker basket that someone pissed on in the woods, but that’s about it. Even ruins an old fashioned when used as the primary ingredient. Damn.

Best introduction to rye whisky

I didn't know Rye whisky until trying WhistlePig in a nice hotel bar.
This is now my favourite whisky, I use the 10 year old for my Old Fashioned.

WhistlePig also have a 15 year old rye that I only drink neat, really shows the characteristics of rye whisky.
They do 100% rye whisky whereas I got explained that most rye whiskys have between 51% to 70% rye.

Tastes like the inside of a fish tank that needs cleaning

It smells delightful. It looks divine. But it tastes like I imagine licking a fish tank would taste. Very much like algae. Not "woodsy", not "earthy", ALGAE. Nasty. Glad I didn't buy it for myself.

Very Nice

Very nice this one. Great balance to it. Possibly one of the best Rye I have ever tasted.

Superb rye whisky

One of the best on the market. Not overpriced, well worth splashing out on

Shockingly Overrated

WhistlePig 10-Year Rye is, at best, a sub-par Rye. Despite its (somewhat) premium price, it actually has less depth than ryes which cost half the price. The high reviews that initially came out on this rye's release have now been (famously...perhaps infamously) called out as highly suspect and likely paid for. After the initial accolades (many of which were literally "cut and paste" repeat text), actual reviewers began to have their say.

From that moment on, the reviews for WhistlePig began to nosedive.

Is it awful? No.

Is it fairly one-dimensional with a touch too much heat on top of a slightly bitter hay taste? You bet.

Not competitively priced

I bought this as a present for my cousin who enjoyed it but dismayed to find that the price has gone up by £5 since last year or a 7% increase. This makes it not very competitively priced compared to other retailers.

Okay. Probably good in cocktails.

Nose - Oranges and herbs
Palette - More oranges, herbs, sugar, bread.
Finish - Moderately long, Warming alcohol more to the fore, otherwise as palette.
Not a fan of rye but this is probably the best I have tried.

Great in a boulevardier

So good in a boulevardier. Rounder but also weirder than Rittenhouse. More characterful than any bourbon I’ve tried in the cocktail.

As a standalone tipple, there was a note I spent weeks trying to place, and the eventual epiphany is the reason I am wading into the comments. It’s not one ingredient; it’s several at once. It tastes like the secret sauce of a Big Mac.
