WhistlePig The Boss Hog 'The Independent' Third Edition Rye Whiskey Vermont

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

The 2016 edition of WhistlePig's Boss Hog, called "The Independent", is a 14 year old Rye whiskey finished in large (250 Liter) Scotch hogshead barrels. In keeping with tradition this is a big, bold rye with a lot of spice and a robust texture on the palate. This starts with aromas of clove, caramel and cinnamon. The palate is incredibly smooth with some weight, especially for its 120.6 proof. It shows notes of French toast topped with maple and ripe fruit. It's absolutely stunning, and probably the best Boss Hog bottling we've yet tasted. Only a handful of these made their way to us. Best to snag one now.

Whistle Pig represents everything we're looking for in a great whiskey; rarity, pedigree, and a great story. Located on one of the oldest farms in Vermont dating back to the early 19th-Century, this 500-acre property was once a thriving epicenter for grist and lumber. The farm remained in operation until 2006, when it was purchased by founder Raj Peter Bhakta and transformed into a rye farm and distillery. Bhakta's plan was to create a single estate rye whiskey that would stand as a model for fully sustainable agriculture in the US. A lofty goal that would require the help Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, who after a long career with Maker's Mark wanted to create his magnum opus. This combination of passion, experience, and just the right amount of insanity proved the perfect combination for driving success.
