I was in Wisconsin for the weekend so I tried some whistlepig. I've never seen that around here, but it was pretty good!

It's all over in the burbs, little expensive for what you get. The 6 yr small batch is OK for the price at about $40, but then you start getting into the 10yr single barrel stuff which is $100, and theres so much better stuff out there for that price. There's a boss hog Whistle Pig at the local Jewel here that's been sitting for months at $599...

I had a chance to try the 15 year Whistlepig... and I was gloriously underwhelmed. As I normally do, I started with it neat, found it one dimensional with too much of an antiseptic bitter to the front and an aftertaste that reminded me of Johnny Walker Black of all things. It didn't get much better with a few drops of water. I managed to finish it with some ice. I couldn't pick up any evolution or major changes. The water and ice only softened that front hit and changed it more to an ethanol kick that you get with barrel proof stuff when neat.

Not yet!
We are saving that for after the first successful shakedown run of the Fiero.
I prank my friend on it a bit. I showed up at his place with it and said "Look at what I got for my birthday! It's a shame you haven't been able to find any of it. I'll let you know how it is." and Mike just stares at me and flatly goes "Fuck you." lol. I told him it wasn't a birthday gift and it was for he and I to celebrate when we hit that milestone for the car. He lightened up a little (or as much as he ever does).
