WhistlePig The Boss Hog VI The Samurai Scientist 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.
