The newest WhistlePig Boss Hog release is out, and it’s a doozy. Like past years, WhistlePig Black Prince is a rye whiskey, although this time its original provenance is American (MGP) rather than Canadian. It’s 14 years old, and it spent some time resting in Armagnac casks (a brandy made from aromatic white grapes) before it was bottled at cask strength.
14 years old, 119.2 proof, 95% rye/5% malted barley. Finished in Armagnac casks, around 6,000 bottles made.
The Vermont Estate Oak Rye is a highly matured rye whiskey aged for 15 years, and finished in custom charred barrels made from Vermont White Oak trees logged on The WhistlePig’s Farm. Due to harsh winters and a shorter growing season, these trees possess a denser wood grain, imparting a nuanced and distinct flavor into the rye. The Vermont Oak Rye is the next step in WhistlePig’s mission to become fully farm-to-bottle, with the barrels coming from wood grown on the farm.
Straight Rye Whiskey
Whistle Pig Straight Rye is a 100 proof 100 percent rye whiskey. It is aged for a minimum of ten years in oak barrels at their Vermont facility.
