95% Rye. 14-Years Aged. First Rye finished in Armagnac Barrels New Danforth Pewter Mortimer Stopper Barrel Strengh. The name says it all. This is their biggest, most profound whiskey for the Boss Hog in all. The result is extraordinary. A fine balance between American power and French sophistication. There's nothing else like it. Nose: Toasted almonds, plum, fig, allspice and warm apple crisp. Palate: Bold, powerful spice, apricot, clove End cinnamon sugar. A drop of water brings out notes citrus fruits and black tea. Finish: Exceptionally long, with burnt sugar, toasted marshmallows, dried fruits and a gentle oak spice.

About the Producer

WhistlePig Distillery was founded in Vermont’s Champlain Valley in 2007, when Raj P. Bhakta purchased WhistlePig farm, a 500-plus acres farm in Shoreham, VT. Bhakta joined forces with Master Distiller Dave Pickerell (of Maker’s Mark fame), and the duo procured a batch of North American aged rye. In 2008, they created a five-year plan to transform the farm to a rye distillery, which opened in 2015.
