SINGLE BARREL BARREL STRENGTH FINISHED IN UMESHU BARRELS

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.

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 fades.

This unique bottling is straight rye whiskey finished in umeshu (plum wine) barrels, bottled at an extraordinarily high proof. Don't even bother without adding water. But when you hit the right dilution level, drying plum skin gives way to vanilla, cocoa fruit and gentle spice, finishing drying and grippy.
