Contrary to what popular media might be telling you in your newsfeed, the rye whiskey market has been going strong ever since Prohibition. Old Overholt–billed as America’s oldest continually maintained brand of whiskey–and Rittenhouse Rye–introduced in ’34 at the end of prohibition and now part of the Heaven Hill family–are two of the first, and arguably most important, names on the tip of the tongue. We love sipping both of those bottled in bond expressions, but we appreciate when even our spirits go the extra 10% for us. Enter Whistlepig’s 10 Year Piggybank Rye. Yes, it’s packaged in a pig-shaped decanter reminiscent of a 19th-century antique Berkshire Bitter Pig that yes, just so happens to pour out of its butt (ha. ha.) when you crack the wax seal. But far more importantly, it’s bottled at 110 proof, celebrates the decade of accomplishment since they won their first “Best Rye” award in 2012, and packs the big, bold and unapologetic flavors and spices we’ve all come to expect from Whistlepig Ryes. If you can find one at retail, pull the trigger immediately.
