WhistlePig has an interesting story. Founded in 2007, it’s a Vermont distillery that for years only sourced rye whiskey from Canada and finished aging it in Vermont (like an independent bottler). WhistlePig 10 is debatably a Canadian rye whiskey even though all the branding tries to imply that it’s American.

taste is fruit-forward with primarily orange and pineapple with just a little vanilla. It’s a tropical cocktail, but not nearly as sweet. There’s also a light singe of alcohol, a gentle wood poke, and just a sprinkle of peppermint. This has the brighter fruit sweetness instead of the darker caramel and maple syrup sweetness.
