The Boss Hog 六
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.
Intensely aromatic, with cinnamon, maple, and toasted marshmallow that develops with time in the glass.
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.
Incredibly long, with oak spice, char, and just a touch of smoke lingers as the finish fades.
“One of the top dogs in rye whiskey…. If you’re gonna sip neat or on the rocks, this is it."
“Whistle Pig is the easy answer here. 10 years old. 100 proof… Those are some ideal numbers followed up by a better-than-ideal whiskey.”
"The world's best rye. Always have it on hand."
"10/10. Best whiskey. No one in my opinion compares."
“Smooth flavorful quality - one of our favorite indulgences.”
"Easily one of the smoothest whiskeys I've ever had. The Boss Hog is out of this world good!"
"Amazing depth of flavor with that whiskey bite that keeps us coming back for more."
"Wonderful whiskeys. Neat, rocks or cocktails, you’ll never go wrong with the Pig!"
