WhistlePig tells BourbonBlog.com that they plan for at May 2016 release of their oldest whiskey to date as the WhistlePig 15-year-old Vermont Estate Oak Rye. At 92 proof, this highly matured rye whiskey has been finished in custom charred barrels made from Vermont White Oak trees logged on The WhistlePig Farm in Shoreham, Vermont.
Due to harsh winters and a shorter growing season, these trees possess a denser wood grain, imparting a nuanced and distinct flavor into the rye.
WhistlePig says that the Vermont Oak Rye is the next step in WhistlePig’s mission to become fully farm-to-bottle, with the barrels coming from wood grown on the farm.
