    WhistlePig Rye 12 Year

    I know that there was some concern regarding the future of WhistlePig with the recent break-up of business partners, however, it appears a 12 year rye is on the horizon:

    Re: WhistlePig Rye 12 Year

    Great find! This is one I look forward to trying. Does anyone know if they barreled all of their first sourced whiskey? I ask because I wonder if this is new sourced stuff, or the first release left in barrels for a couple more years. The timing on the second thought would seem to make sense.

    They seen to have removed the "produced in Canada" language.

    Re: WhistlePig Rye 12 Year

    There was some general discussion about it following the Whiskyfest weekend in the Knob Creek rye thread too. Nice cola observation c2walker:

He's also working on some other products made on this side of the border.

    Thanks for the good info guys. Now that my brain is stuffed with all this new Whistlepig knowledge, I now need to stuff my belly with the 12-year-old whiskey.

    Glad to hear this is on the horizon. I thoroughly enjoyed my two bottles of WP and plan to continue seeking out Mr. Pickerell's products.

    No sign of a 12 y/o, but an 11 y/o 111 proof version is going to be released soon. http://www.ahistoryofdrinking.com/wo...rye-this-fall/
