Whistle Pig "BOSS HOG VII" Magellan's Atlantic Straight Rye Whiskey (Vermont) 750ML
Distiller's Notes: Single Barrel, Bottled at Proof, Powerfully Complex, Distinctly Unique From Anything We’ve Done Before. Stupendous.
The Boss Hog embodies our enduring quest to create the finest and most interesting Rye Whiskey – a pursuit that carries us to the very edges of the earth.
Inspired by the first recorded circumnavigation of the globe, The Boss Hog VII: Magellan’s Atlantic is a Straight Rye Whiskey with an uncharted cask journey that stretches across continents. After seventeen years of slumber in American Oak, it first encounters new Spanish staves from the mountainous forests of northern Spain; a cask nearly impossible to tame yet well worth the effort. Crossing the Atlantic the whiskey finds its finish in fragrant South American teakwood.
This rare and outstandingly complex whiskey is barrel strength, bottled between 105.1 and 107.8 proof.
NOSE: Intensely aromatic, with cinnamon sugar, allspice, and maple. With time, toasted wood notes arise alongside creamy vanilla, roasted almonds, and a touch of ground espresso.
PALATE: Spicy cloves and sweet brandied cherries abound, with baking spices rampant. A closer look reveals subtle hints of charred oak, sage, and dark chocolate.
FINISH: Everlasting; gobs of cinnamon, oak spice, and a gentle warmth demand another sip.
