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.

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
What the heck is a “whistle pig” anyway? Even though the label for Whistle Pig Rye is adorned with the sketch of a tuxedo-clad hog, “whistlepig,” groundhog, and woodchuck all refer to the same animal.
