FarmStock Rye Crop No. 002 is the second blend of their limited edition annual FarmStock estate release. It is the latest of their products showing farm-based innovation and the next step in achieving WhistlePig FarmStock’s 100% Triple Terroir™ vision – whiskey distilled from their grain, proofed with their water and aged in their custom Vermont White Oak.
The FarmStock Rye Crop 002 blend was crowdsourced from bartenders, influencers, and consumers from around the United States. The final blend is composed of 32% 2-year aged Triple Terroir™ whiskey made entirely from Rye, water and wood from the WhistlePig farm (up from 20% 1 year Triple Terroir™ Whiskey in Rye Crop no. 001), 45% 6-year aged whiskey from MPGI in Indiana and 23% 10-year aged whiskey from Alberta Distillers in Canada. Rye Crop 002 marries the untamed contours and boldness of WhistlePig’s young estate whiskey with the richness and complexity of aged ryes.
NOSE: Orange zest, white chocolate, vanilla bean and fresh pear combine with a gentle Rye spice.
PALATE: Delicate fruitiness gives way to a full-bodied burst of spice, rounded by notes of allspice and cinnamon and balanced with a pleasant dryness.
FINISH: White pepper and oak spice leave a light and surprisingly lengthy finish.
