'The Boss Hog' Straight Rye 6th Edition WhistlePig FarmAmerican Whiskey
"Made using koji during fermentation and finished in barrels seasoned with umeshu, a plum liqueur. Earthy and a bit mysterious, with sandalwood incense, cedar smoke, eucalyptus, barrel char, and sweet aromas of vanilla taffy, key lime pie, and lemon oil. There’s a lot of dry oak on the palate, but it’s balanced with chewy herbs, lapsang souchong tea, pistachio, orange peel, milk chocolate, fennel, and peppery spice. The finish is long, spiced, and herbal, with licorice, mint, eucalyptus, and dry oak."

"On the nose, it is intensely aromatic, with cinnamon, maple, and toasted marshmallow that develops with time in the glass. The palate has 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. The finish is incredibly long, with oak spice, char, and just a touch of smoke lingers as the finish fades."
