Reviews and Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Baltic Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
This dram greets your nose with notes of warm harvest cider, ginger, pipe tobacco, leather, vanilla, and just enough Rye spice.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Remarkably, the palate makes you imagine stewed pears with notes of oak and dark chocolate. Add a dash of water or cocktail ice and classic Rye spice and fruit jump to center stage.

Finish
The finish is long and complex with toasted oak and apple pie.

— Apple with the spice of rye. A beautiful dram.

— I alternated between this and a Thomas H Handy 2018 to compare, and this release of Boss Hog won. It packs a lot of flavor, and the aroma is among the best I have encountered with any whiskey.

— Wow. Just wow. The wonderful flavor profile with crisp apples, and hint of smoke and then that 58%!

Nathan,
I Think this is really good rye, but I don't enjoy it significantly more than a knob creek cask strength or a templeton rye which are 1/10th the price.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Overpriced in my opinion. Very good and complex, although it was harder than I expected to pick out flavors from the calvados finish.

Dave,
Worth every penny! So smooth and easy to drink. Amazing finish! Enough heat to know you have a well done bourbon but disappears among the flavors.
 
Byron
Byron,
Overpriced. Smooth and complex with several interesting flavor notes. I found the leather to be prominent and the oak and rye understated. It's definitely a good whiskey, but I've had bottles that I enjoyed more for 1/4 the price. Value is of course subjective and your mileage may vary.

Got this for my 50th birthday! It didn’t survive the evening! One of the best I have ever had!

Benjamin,
Not so impressed. Enjoyed a glass at a hosted sampling. The price is definitely not commensurate with the expectation. Flavors are smooth; with the Spice at the end, the oak finish is displaced by a hint of black walnut and fresh baked bread...probably the rye mash still lingering in the finish. The lesser whistle pigs significantly less weighty on the wallet and provide a reasonable experience.

Super smooth. Very flavorful. Super high proof but goes down like silk.
