A seventeen year-old WhistlePig Rye masterpiece finished with two exotic woods.

In 2007, a band of dedicated Rye enthusiasts bought the farm — they actually purchased a plot of land in Vermont lovingly named WhistlePig Farm. They teamed up with master distiller Dave Pickerell — formerly of Maker’s Mark — to bring genuine Rye Whiskey back to the forefront of American Whiskies. It took a lot of time, patience, experimentation, and reinvestment, but they have grown to produce five award-winning core products and have experimented with a variety of finished wood special edition Whiskies too.

The Boss Hog editions are special experiments in wood and finishing. A few of us have the previous Boss Hog releases on our shelves at home — parsing them out with an eyedropper on special occasions because these things are always amazing. As the numerical naming implies, WhistlePig The Boss Hog VII: Magellan's Atlantic is first and foremost an incredible, high-quality, single barrel Rye Whiskey that has been aged for seventeen years. But then the masters at WhistlePig finish the Spirit by adding rare Spanish oak staves. But they’re not done, because then they cross the Atlantic (like Magellan) to finish it a second time with South American teakwood staves. Get your bottle now before the staff loses all self-control to raid the warehouse.

Smartass Corner:
Ferdinand Magellan was actually Portuguese. But he organized the Spanish expedition to navigate to the East Indies by heading West, thus becoming the first known to circumnavigate the globe, completing the journey in 1522.

One of the most complex and best tasting whiskeys I have ever had. This is my new favorite!

Great taste
 
Marisa
Marisa,
Most amazing aroma of cinnamon rolls, which also comes through on taste. One of my all time favorite pours.
 
Scott
Scott,
Smells like the deep gold maple syrup you imagine is poured over pancakes, and the taste is both delightfully sweet and spicy with a good bite.

Loved this Mouth feel is so light and airy it’s almost like magic. Tasting something like this that’s so high in alcohol and yet so smooth and sweet is a joy.

Jordan
Jordan,
I’ve always been a huge boss hog fan w spirit of mauve being my favorite but this one may take the cake. Very complex with great afternotes. The teak wood finishing leaves an interesting and exotic aftertaste. This one is smoother than the samurai and a different tasting more than I’ve ever had. Exquisite bottle and another slam dunk for whistelpig
 
Christian
Christian,
Beautiful gingerbread and baking spices on the nose and at the finish. The multi barrel exposure might have resulted in an overemphasis of oak (or teak), fortunately the 17 years of aging have been very kind to this exquisite bottle.
 
Jason
Jason,
Once again, WhistlePig Boss Hog delivers a uniquely incredible experience. Yes, this series is crazy expensive but they are always unique, stupendous, and delightful. The nose is woody and spicy and floral. A sweet citrus, floral, and mint base from the Canadian Rye on the palate with plenty of cinnamon and clove and a finish of spicy wood (not oak, I believe it is the South American teakwood). Late in the finish, I noticed lime. If you can part with $500+, then this will be an excellent experience meant to share with friends.
 
Hunter
Hunter,
So much cinnamon and clove baking spice on the back end of this, with a familiar but great rye front. Unlike anything else.
 
Brian
Brian,
A long mouth watering finish. Shame that it costs so much. If you can afford it, a must try.
 
Frank
Frank,
Overpriced and too difficult to find. Not worth the effort for what is essentially Canadian Whiskey
