Rye Crop No. 002 is the second release on the ever-evolving journey to a 100% WhistlePig Triple-Terroir whiskey. WhistlePig was awarded with the coveted “Best in Show Whiskey” title at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2017.
Founded in 2008, WhistlePig is now the most awarded Rye Whiskey maker in the world. They live by a simple ethos: protect what makes Rye Whiskey great, toss out the rest, and then innovate to make it better. Their remote 500-acre hard-working farm in bucolic Shoreham, Vermont, is the perfect place to perfect their experiments with blending and finishing, ultimately leading to a portfolio of deeply complex Rye Whiskeys. In 2017 WhistlePig was awarded the coveted ‘Best In Show Whiskey’ title from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
“We’ve always dreamed of having a true farm-to-bottle whiskey. FarmStock, for us, is that journey. With each year, and each Rye Crop, we increase the percentage of the blend that is our Triple-Terroir™ whiskey. In time FarmStock will be 100% Triple-Terroir™.” Rye Crop No. 002 marries the untamed contours and boldness of their estate whiskey, which only youth can provide, with the richness of their best six year rye, topped off with the splendor of their 10 year whiskey.
Orange zest aromas, white chocolate, vanilla bean, and fresh pear combine with a gentle rye spice. The palate has a delicate fruitiness that gives way to a full-bodied burst of spice, rounded by notes of allspice and cinnamon, and balanced with a pleasant dryness. On the finish notes of white pepper and oak spice leave a light and surprisingly lengthy finish.
