Whistle Pig Boss Hog "The Black Prince" 4th Edition is generally considered the best edition yet of the Boss Hog series. The 4th edition really got whiskey lover's attention when it took home Best Whiskey at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, besting all other rye, bourbon, scotch and other international whiskies. Made almost entirely from American rye, rather than a blend of Candian and American rye, with 5% malted barley and aged in Armagnac brandy barrels this is a big, brash rye whiskey. Nose of rye, dark fruits and baking spices. Next wave of aromas and flavors include white grape (from the Armagnac cask), mild sweetness, followed by a rich and intense mouthfeel, with massive spice notes. Long, viscuous finish with more fruit, herb, spice and carmalized sugar on the end.
