Whistlepig Camp Stock Wheat Whiskey


Whistlepig CampStock Wheat Whiskey...$64.99/750ml

WhistlePig and Solo Stove are firing up summer with a stave-to-stove collaboration made for gathering ‘round the campfire. Our Limited Edition CampStock Wheat Whiskey is a blend of aged wheat & grain-to-glass rye whiskeys, finished with a proprietary Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0 barrel toast.

With crowd-pleasing character and mellow toasted notes, this summer sipper is ready for wherever the sunny season takes you - Solo Stove in tow. To fuel the fire, we cut down our barrel staves and packed them up as Solo Stove whiskey barrel firewood. Summer is short. Light a smokeless fire, and pour yourself s’more!

Rated 95/100 Wine Spectator
With cherrywood or cedar, the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino has a savory, almost spicy side that follows garden herb, cola, dark cherry, plum and sweet cherry. The fruit is slightly baked or cooked with hints of road paving or smoky tar. This is a concentrated wine for sure, with fruit sourced from three sites: Collesorbo, Pian Bossolino and Giardinello. Production is 32,000 bottles. Drying tannins want a steak and polenta dinner.

2012 Marqués de Murrieta Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial

2012 Marques de Murrietta Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Espcial...$279.99
So much dried flower, mushroom, iron, rust, sweet berry, and grilled orange. Full-bodied with very elegant and refined tannins that melt in the mouth and give a real sense of place and integrity. Balanced and harmonious. The finesse and finish is endless. Production was 30% less than in 2011. Already so drinkable. A wonderful future. This is the new 1934 or 1964, two legends. Drink or hold.
Rated 100/100 James Suckling

The 2012 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial was produced with a blend of 81% Tempranillo and 19% Mazuelo (Cariñena) from the plot La Plana in the Ygay estate, which was planted in 1950.....very classical, with notes of earth, cedar, spice and meat. The palate is polished, sleek and elegant with a touch of earthy rusticity. 103,216 bottles, 3,121 magnums and some larger formats produced. It was bottled in May 2019. No 2013, 2014 or 2015 will be produced, so from here, they will jump to 2016 to be released in 2026 or 2027. I look forward to it, and I'm intrigued about what I'm going to find when I taste it.
Rated 97/100 The Wine Advocate

2023 La Vieille Ferme Blanc at an amazing price

"Jean-Pierre Perrin established La Vieille Ferme over 45 years ago, as an affordable straightforward Rhône wine to sell by direct mail to French wine lovers. He used the same grape varieties in similar proportions to those planted at the family’s Château de Beaucastel and employed a similar vinification process" - importer

"One of the Perrins- worldwide successes has been their least expensive wine, now in screw cap, La Vieille Ferme. Basically this is an under-$10 wine in both white and red that is exceptionally well-made, and the ideal inexpensive introduction to the viticulture of southern France" - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

2023 La Vieille Ferme Blanc....$6.99
Compare to $9.49 at Total Wine and More, Fairview Heights
Elegant pale yellow-green colour with silver highlights. This wine opens with a nose full of freshness with notes of lemon and pear delicately mixed with a bouquet of small white flowers. These aromas linger on the palate with beautiful tension and a remarkable balance between juicy fruit and lots of freshness. The finish is saline bringing a delicate hint of bitterness which gives this wine length and flavour.
If you enjoy quaffable wines, this one is ideal as an aperitif or paired with a simple meal.

Farm & Estate Red Corn Bourbon

Farm & Estate Red Corn Bourbon...$43.99 / 750ml
Non-GMO heirloom grain Jimmy red corn is a typically rich and sweet corn with a little more aromatics. The Brasetto rye is used for the nutty, spicy and fruit notes of this grain.

The crops are grown in the Midwest at Ford county 1 and Stumpf Farms. They are irrigated and mashed/fermented with limestone water like traditional bourbons. This particular whiskey is mashed, fermented and aged together. This came together nicely and the flavor at this proof is such that it is being offered uncut. 
Grain: 85% Corn (Jimmy Red) 12.5% Rye (Brasetto) 2.5% Malt (2 Row)
Character: rich, spicy, fruity, malted "pilsner style" grassy, toasty, deep
