This 3rd Edition of Boss Hog, The Independent, is a celebration of the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation. This is the first Rye Whiskey ever finished in Hogshead barrels: 250 liter Scotch casks, some of the largest barrels in the business, which were comprehensively refitted with new American oak heads. With only 30 barrels produced, this edition of Boss Hog is extremely rare.
The result is extraordinary. A fine balance between rippling power and delicate nuance. There's nothing else like it.
Nose: Oak and vanilla are predominant on the nose, with undertones of mint, caramel and baking spice
Palate: Warm and bold, with lots of spices. Very faint hints of peat and smoke. Slightly earthy
Finish: Surprisingly easy drinking for its proof with a long, warm, spicy finish.
