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.
