Product Description

The 6th instalment in Whistlepig's Boss Hog series. 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 from this single barrel is bottled at strength between 120 – 122 proof.

Official Tasting Notes

Nose - Intensely aromatic, with cinnamon, maple, and toasted marshmallow that develops with time in the glass.

Palate - Tobacco, ginger, baking spices, and savory umami creating a remarkably rich, nuanced and elegant profile lending to soft, sweet notes that further color the mosaic of flavor.

Finish - Incredibly long, with oak spice, char, and just a touch of smoke lingers as the finish fade
