the boss hog VII

“The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore… unlike the mediocre, intrepid spirits seek victory over those things that seem impossible… it is with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors… to meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown.”

A QUEST INTO UNCHARTED TERRITORY FOR AMERICAN WHISKEY

Single Barrel, Bottled at Proof, Powerfully Complex, Distinctly Unique from Anything We’ve Done Before, and Stupendous.

The Boss Hog embodies our quest to create the finest and most interesting Rye Whiskey.  The pursuit of this particular spice carries us to the very edges of the earth… as it did with the bottle’s namesake.

In 1519, Ferdinand Magellan assembled an intrepid crew aboard five galleons in search of a western route to the Spice Islands~a mystical archipelago of modern-day Indonesia.  That these men could make history as the first to circumnavigate the globe was anything but guaranteed.  A perilous journey of unprecedented magnitude separated them from certain history.

Magellan’s Atlantic commemorates the first chapter of this inspired voyage: from Andalusian Spain to the coasts of Brazil and Argentina, where the fleet made landfall before navigating the strait that would come to bear their captain’s name.

After seventeen years of slumber in American Oak, The Boss Hog VII shifts course more than once before it’s ready to come aground.  First it encounters new Spanish staves from the mountainous forests of northern Spain; a cask nearly impossible to tame yet well worth the effort.  The rare oak imparts notes of cinnamon and allspice, dry yet rich and refined.  A beautiful base, to be sure.

But the allure of continued discovery beckoned us onward.  Crossing the Atlantic the liquid finds its finish in fragrant South American teakwood.  With it, an added layer of spice and sophistication, resulting in a Rye that unfurls caraway and caramel in interlacing threads.  A canvas capable of carrying you to a New World.
