WhistlePig Rye

WhistlePig Straight Rye Whiskey is a 100 proof, 100 percent rye whiskey, aged for a minimum of ten years in oak barrels. The whiskey was discovered by Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, who spent over a year on an exhaustive search of North America for the best rye whiskey, and he believes that it embodies the perfect combination of
proof, percent, and age — hitting what he calls “the sweet spot” in all three categories. WhistlePig Straight Rye Whiskey is hand bottled at the WhistlePig Farm Distillery in Shoreham, Vermont and is available in a limited initial offering of only 1000  cases.

Our Price: $73

Maker’s Mark 46*

To make “46”  fully matured Maker’s Mark is removed from its barrel. Top hoops are removed from the barrel, and the barrel head is pulled. Ten wooden seared staves  are then affixed to the inside of that barrel. Searing the staves caramelizes the sugars in the wood, adding a unique flavor that finishes on the front of the tongue.

The fully matured Maker’s Mark is then put back in the barrel and aged several more months. When it tastes exactly right, Maker’s 46 is removed from the barrel, bottled, corked and dipped.

The taste is rich, creamy with seared-oak flavors; caramel and vanilla notes linger on the front of the palate, but it is still soft enough to hold on the tongue even at 94 proof.

Our Price: $40

* 46 was the profile number assigned by barrel maker Brad Boswell to the process  used to sear the oak staves that proved successful in creating the taste profile that Master Distiller Kevin and Brad had been working to achieve.

Slane Castle Irish Whiskey

This unique Whiskey blend has been distilled by the nearby Cooley Distillery, which won the European and World Distiller of the Year at the 2008 International Wine and Spirit Competition.  It is a well balanced blend of malt and grain Irish Whiskey which has been aged and matured for at least four years in American oak barrels that previously matured Bourbon. In the traditional Irish style, the malt whiskey is distilled in copper pot stills and no peated malt is used. The whiskey was recently given a four star rating by the leading American sprit critic F. Paul Paucult of  The Spirit Journal who stated that the Slane Castle Irish Whiskey ‘builds nicely and steadily in the glass with time, providing the drinker with whiskey of substance, gravitas and multi-layered aroma and taste.’

Our Price: $33
