You had to know that for the 10th installment of Boss Hog that WhistlePig was going to go above and beyond. You can bet that they did just that. A major thing that separates WhistlePig from the others, is their Boss Hog bottlings. Not a given as an annual occurrence, Dave always said that the only way he would do a ‘Boss Hog’ bottling at WhistlePig was if his “five promises” were kept. But for the 10th installment, the team at WhistlePig added five more so that the ‘five promises’ are now the 10 commandments! Those commandments are as follows:
This is a pretty incredible bottling – a Straight Rye Whiskey with a double finish. Each barrel of Whiskey is aged in new American Oak before completing its journey in two unorthodox finishing barrels.
The first is seasoned with an experimental in-house spirit – distilled from rye and whey, infused with aromatic resins from the genera commonly known as Frankincense and Myrrh – delivering notes of creme brulee, lemongrass and rosemary to the final whiskey.
The second and final finish is aged in craft mead casks, offering a mellow, round-bodied finish with hints of red berries and freshly crushed black pepper.
Unsurprisingly, the hype around this one is insane. Collectors are going crazy. Unfortunately, these have become such popular limited releases, it seems like folks always get shut out. I only got half of what I usually get (I’m hoping that’ll be fixed on the 2nd drop). DO NOT WAIT if you think this is one of those bottles you need to have.
