Whistlepig The Boss Hog "Third Edition The Independent" - Straight Rye Whiskey$324.99
Made with 100% Rye, this 3rd Edition of Boss Hog, The Independent, is a celebration of the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation. Triple-barreled in New American Oak, and then spent Bourbon casks, it goes on to be the first Rye Whiskey ever finished in Hogshead barrels: 250 liter Scotch casks, some of the largest barrels in the business, which were comprehensively refitted with new American oak heads. With only 30 barrels produced at an average of 125 proof, this edition of Boss Hog is extremely rare.
The result is extraordinary. A fine balance between rippling power and delicate nuance. There’s nothing else like it.
Nose: Oak and vanilla are predominant on the nose, with undertones of mint, caramel and baking spice.
Palate: Warm and bold, with lots of spices. Very faint hints of peat and smoke. Slightly earthy
