THE BOSS HOG:  THE SAMURAI SCIENTIST

Single Barrel, Bottled at Proof, Powerfully Complex, Distinctly Unique From Anything We’ve Done Before. Stupendous.  On the rare occasion that Dave Pickerell’s five promises are realized, we release a whiskey that epitomizes WhistlePig’s odyssey to unlock the potential of Rye Whiskey.  The Boss Hog Edition 六 is the first American Whiskey finished using Japanese Umeshu, the result of a true collaboration between WhistlePig and Kitaya brewery on Japan’s Kyushu island.  This well aged Straight Rye Whiskey was created using koji fermentation.  Each bottle is adorned with The Samurai Scientist – Jōkichi Takamine – who pioneered koji fermentation in the American whisky industry over a century ago.  Each bottle barrel is bottled at strength, between 120 – 122 proof.

OLD WORLD CASK FINISH

American Rye styled by Old World sensibilities.  This 86-proof 12-year-old Rye Whiskey is the greater sum of three finishes, each with their own distinctive flavor profiles. After maturing for over a decade in New American Oak, spirit is divvied into one of three directions. Port pipes (7%), French Sauternes barrels (30%) and Madeira casks (63%) all play a part. Our Master Blender calls in these components around the quintessential boldness of American rye—just as a conductor arranges a symphony. An orchestra of flavor to dazzle the senses.

FARMSTOCK RYE CROP

FarmStock Rye Crop created from our rye grain, distilled and proofed with our water, and aged in our custom Vermont White Oak.  This year’s release is a historical step for us – the first ever majority WhistlePig Whiskey. Comprised of 52% of our 3-year-old Rye Whiskey, blended with 31% 6-year aged whiskey and 17% 10 year aged whiskey from Alberta, Canada.

10 YEAR

The spirit of revolution.  Ingenuity, innovation and a fearless pursuit of flavor led us to the discovery of an aged Rye Whiskey stock in the Great White North. We rescued it from a hapless fate, aging it anew in virgin American Oak, before hand-bottling it on its own, in all its glory. Perhaps there was a stroke of good luck in the mix. But you know what they say about who fortune favors. And our whiskey is nothing if not bold. We offer you the most award-winning whiskey in the world, the one that started it all.
