This is the second limited edition release in WhistlePig's FarmStock series, which is intended to achieve what the distillery has termed its '100% Triple Terroir' vision. This entails creating an expression which is distilled entirely from WhistlePig grain, proofed with WhistlePig water and aged in WhistlePig custom Vermont White Oak.
Our Grain: rye grown on our 500 acre VT farm
Our Water: proofed with water from our well
Our Wood: aged in barrels made from Vermont Oak, harvested from our farm
The 002 blend was crowdsourced from bartenders, influencers and consumers across the United States
Blended under the leadership of Chief Blender Pete Lynch and Master Distiller Dave Pickerell
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 highlighted by hints of caramel and butterscotch
