Whistle Pig "The Boss Hog 5th Edition - The Spirit of Mauve" Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml) (1 bottle limit, ships as 1.5L)

SKU #1383841 92 points Whisky Advocate

 Rich and mature with its deep flavors of spiced oak, figgy fruit, and varnish, turning to candy apple, dried flowers, hazelnut, torched sugar, and cracked black pepper. The palate is explosive at full proof, as sweet stone fruit gives way to earthy oak and tobacco. The calvados barrel maturation really sings on the finish, where sweet apple candies and pecan pie meet big cinnamon and ginger spices. Incredibly drinkable at this proof with well-balanced oak. (JL, Spring 2019)

K&L Notes

The makers of this 100% rye whiskey put it simply: "The name says it all. This is our biggest, most profound whiskey for the Boss Hog in all of us." The fifth release of the Boss Hog whiskey is named in honor of the company's celebrity pig Mauve. The oinker had an "undying" fondness and appetite for apples so the whiskey is aged in Calvados casks for 13 years and delivers "a unique blend of sweet and spiced flavors with a fine balance between American power and French sophistication."

- Canada's thriving wine industry is concentrated in the four provinces of Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec and Nova Scotia. Because of the extreme climates of these Region, grapes tend to be grown near large bodies of water, which balance the effects of the severe winters. For the same reason, snow-resistant North American grape varieties like Concord and Niagara, the French Vidal Blanc, Seyval Blanc and Baco Noir are grown in Canada. Additionally, Riesling, Chardonnay and Merlot are becoming more popular. The Canadian wine industry is most recognized as the largest producer of Icewine in the world.
