About WhistlePig The Boss Hog IVth Edition: "The Black Prince"

WhistlePig is one of the only American whiskey businesses to conduct every step of product onsite, from the harvesting of the rye fields to the distilling, barreling aging and bottling. They operate on a sustainable closed loop system, growing its own rye (which needs very little fertilization, and the residual gets recycled for pig feed) on its own farm. They even source their own oak tree logs for their barrels from the premises. WhistlePig is the ultimate grain-to-glass operation, which allows meticulous attention to detail every step of the whiskey making process.

This is the fourth edition of the 10-year-old brand’s signature Boss Hog collection. This whiskey is the first rye ever to be finished in casks formerly used to age the French brandy Armagnac. Aged for 14 years, this straight rye is bottled at barrel strength.

This bold rye is characterized by its smoothness and depth of character. This balanced, highly nuanced Black Prince expression was named Best in Show for whiskey at the blind tasting held during the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

About WhistlePig

Founded in 2008, WhistlePig is now the most awarded rye whiskey maker in the world. Their remote 500-acre hard-working farm in bucolic Shoreham, Vermont, is the perfect place to perfect their experiments with blending and finishing, ultimately leading to a portfolio of deeply complex rye whiskeys. In 2017 WhistlePig was awarded the coveted "Best In Show Whiskey" title from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Until his passing in 2018 the WhistlePig farm had been home to the founding father of craft whiskey, Master Distiller Dave Pickerell.
Their vision is to respect tradition and embrace progress, protecting what makes rye whiskey great, and at the same time innovating to make it better. After years of devotion to patient aging and innovative blending, WhistlePig has turned their attention to experimenting with grain, namely the practice of malting rye. Before industrial catalysts were introduced to increase efficiency, farmer distillers would malt a small portion of their rye harvest in order to access the grain's starch content and set off the fermentation process.

About Rye

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.

By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.

Armagnac-accented oak contributes to the Black Prince being redolent with notes of apricot, fig, and plum on the nose, complemented by toasted almonds, baked apple, and allspice. Predominant on the palate are apricot, clove, and cinnamon, with hints of citrus and black tea. The finish, which seems to linger like the longing for a lost love, comforts with traces of toasted marshmallows, burnt sugar, and dried fruit.
