Very unique being 100% rye, and a fantastic rendition at that.  My whiskey of choice is bourbon, but the WP scratches the itch in terms of quality, complexity of flavor, length of finish, texture, and smoothness.  My only complaint is that Bevmo states that it is aged in Vermont, which is clearly not true.  This is sourced from Alberta Distilling in Canada...the story (some might say "controversy") is all over the internet.  But in the final analysis I don't care where it was distilled, aged, or bottled.  As long as my gullet is satisfied!

Just tried Whistle Pig Straight Rye at a bar for the first time and I have to say that to use the words "smooth" and "vegetal" pretty much describe it.  In fact, I would say, for me, it was too smooth, too light in body and color, and had a young "vegetal flavor that I had yet to taste in any rye whiskey.  I think I actually frowned at my first neat sip.  I added a couple small cubes and let it sit for a few minutes.  That helped.  The green rye flavor receded, allowing for the more traditional black pepper to come forward, but not enough to make me a fan.

When the gods take human form, Whistlepig is their chosen nectar...
 I am a bourbon man, and once, while at a upscale whiskey bar that had run out of my favorite bourbon, I asked the bartender to suggest a whiskey of similar quality, luxury and character--and he poured me a Whistlepig.  On first sip, I was captivated by the rich, velvety sophistication that brought an alluring refinement to the obvious power and masculinity of this amber ambrosia.  It is as round and virile and smooth as a hearty aged bourbon, but with a sinuous vegetal streak of matured rye running through it, like the ancient serpent through the Garden of Eden, that somehow, makes it feel like drinking in the wealth of Spring, just before it gives way to Summer. To sit and sip Whistlepig Rye, with friends, or alone, gives one the distinct feeling that in the story of life unfolding in the world around you, you are certainly a main character, and things are about to get very good...very quickly.

I've been on a rye kick for a while now. This one easily takes the top spot as my favorite. Mastersons, Templeton, and Willet are all nice, but they scarcely hold a candle to the Whistle Pig.
