WhistlePig The Boss Hog VII "Magellan's Atlantic" Straight Rye Whiskey
This expression takes its inspiration from the famous Portuguese explorer. The rye whiskey is aged 17 years with two consecutive rounds of finishing. Rare Spanish oak staves and South American teakwood add complexity to the unique barrel strength-proof spirit.
The nose is intense and sweet with cinnamon, allspice, maple, toasted oak, vanilla, roasted almonds, and coffee. There's spice on the palate in the form of cloves and baking spices, along with fruity cherry sweetness, charred oak, and dark chocolate. The lengthy and slightly warm finish has lingering cinnamon and oak spice notes.
