As a testament to WhistlePig’s devotion to creating, breaking and rewriting the laws of whiskey, we expanded The Boss Hog’s original five promises with The Commandments:
I. Single Barrel II. Bottled at Proof III. Powerfully Complex IV. Distinctly Unique From Anything We’ve Done Before V. Stupendous VI. Fearlessly First Amongst All Whiskeys VII. Inspired by the Unfamiliar VIII. Irreverently Inventive IX. Made for Drinking X. Knows No Bounds
The Boss Hog X transcends tradition with a double finish inspired by our own land of milk and honey. Each barrel of Straight Rye Whiskey is aged in new American Oak before completing its journey in two unorthodox finishing barrels. The first is seasoned with our own experimental 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.
The result – thousands of years’ worth of wonder condensed into a bottle of biblical proportions, righteously rendered at barrel proof.
