About WhistlePig The Boss Hog VII: Magellan's Atlantic

WhistlePig The Boss Hog VII: Magellan’s Atlantic is a nod to the spirit of the discovery of the Portuguese explorer. This unique single-barrel expression is a 17-year-old rye whiskey that has had two consecutive rounds of finishing after its period of aging in American oak. First are the rare oak staves from northern Spain which bring notes of cinnamon and allspice to the table. Then there's South American teakwood which adds another layer of spice and caramel, resulting in a complex, unique, and powerful rye whiskey that is bottled at barrel strength.

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.

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 a fruity cherry sweetness, charred oak, and dark chocolate. The lengthy and slightly warm finish has lingering cinnamon and oak spice notes.
