Year: 2021 by t8ke

Info: Barrel #119990, Barreled 9/28/2020, Bottled January 2021, 58.3% ABV


Notes: Rich and desserty – lots of delicious caramel, honey, rye spice and pepper. Kind of like a Manhattan in a glass. Bright maple syrupy, cracked pepper, a light citrus peel and some cherry – a note I don’t usually get from Alberta Rye.

Additional Info“This single barrel selection of delicious Alberta rye drinks so easily and carries with it so many layers of flavor we simply had to call it a Manhattan RTD. Bringing forward bright maple syrup, light citrus peel, and a dash of cherry, this Whistle Pig Straight Rye selection will serve perfectly as its own ready-to-drink cocktail. Cheers!” — An inviting description on the side of a brand new can at the liquor store. What do you say – pick one up and try it out?
