Details
This latest release in WhistlePig's much-anticipated Boss Hog series is a seriously collectible edition. Distinctly unique, it's a deeply complex rye whisky, expertly aged for nearly 18 years in new American oak, followed by a double finish in high-toast barrels that previously held small-batch, single-island aged Philippine rum.
It is inspired by the strong, independent spirit of the great Filipino warrior LapuLapu, who successfully defended his island home against Spanish colonialism in 1521 – you'll find his pewter likeness standing atop each bottle.

TASTING NOTES:
Rich, smooth and full-bodied

Aroma

Lush vanilla aromas give way to delicate topical notes of underripe bananas, freshly picked lemon and molasses.

Taste

There's an abundance of fresh cinnamon with citrus zest, butterscotch and light toffee notes. The finish is long-lasting with hints of tanned leather, brown sugar, nutmeg, allspice and black pepper rye.

What sets this rare release apart from others in the Boss Hog collection is its double finish in Philippine rum barrels.
 

The whisky rests first in seven-year-old casks, followed by a shorter finish in 10-year-old casks.
 

The older rum is darker and bolder, requiring less time for its barrels to impart unique notes in the whisky.
 

The result is an already deeply complex well-aged rye whisky with added layers of warm spice (think cacao and brown sugar) and delicate tropical notes, such as dried pineapple.
