WhistlePig The Boss Hog VI The Samurai Scientist Katakana Edition Straight Rye Whiskey 750mlMore from WhistlePig
This Boss Hog Edition 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.
The result is extraordinary. A fine balance between rippling power and delicate nuance. There's nothing else like it.
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.
