The high-corn mashbill bourbon is released at 100 percent after 6 years in char #3 barrels. WhistlePig claims that some of the whiskey in the bottle comes from its own Vermont farm and the rest is sourced from unidentified distillery partners.
Following the release of PiggyBack 100% Rye back in 2019, this is the second PiggyBack whiskey in WhistlePig's arsenal. This whiskey is targeted at bartenders, much like the rye, and the manufacturer advertises it as a potent complement to traditional drinks like a Whiskey Sour. As a rye-centric company, WhistlePig now only provides one other whiskey, Farmstock Beyond Bonded bourbon, which is twice as expensive as this new release. The reduced price range also means that WhistlePig fans will have an easier entrance point to the brand, and with a bourbon to match.
