WhistlePig Boss Hog VII Magellan’s Atlantic
Here we have the seventh release of WhistlePig’s superb Boss Hog series. This one is entitled Magellan’s Atlantic, which is a glorious 17 year old expression. The initial maturation was in fresh American oak casks, then the rye spirit was transferred to Spanish oak casks, it was then transferred for a third maturation period in South American teakwood casks. A very intriguing cask selection, which has made quite the impression on the already excellent WhistlePig rye.
WHISTLEPIG BOSS HOG VII Tasting Notes:
Intense cinnamon, allspice, and maple syrup. Creamy vanilla pods, honey-roasted almonds and coffee.
Definite spicy cloves, more cinnamon, charred oak, mocha and dark chocolate.
Very long finish, oak spice lingers.
