product Details

Whistlepig 14 Year Old Single Barrel Rye / The Boss Hog 4th Edition

The Whistlepig distillery was established in Vermont in 2007 by Raj Peter Bhakta, who enlisted the late Dave Pickerell as Master Distiller, having previously worked at Maker's Mark for 14 years. Initially, the distillery sourced casks of rye whisky while they were setting up their distilling operation. The majority of these barrels were sourced from MGP in Indiana, and from Alberta Distillers in Canada. Their high-quality blends, single barrels, and unusual cask finishes have seen the brand become and overwhelming success. They began distilling at Whistlepig Farm in 2015, bottling the first of their own distillate as part of their "triple terroir" Farmstock blends in 2017. In the same year, Bhakta retired from the company, selling his stake in it to BDT Partners two years later.

This is the fourth edition of the highly sought-after The Boss Hog, this time titled, The Black Prince.

Barrel #4 was aged 14 years and has been finished in Armagnac barrels from France.

All later The Boss Hog bottlings feature a Danforth Pewter stopper.
