This limited release WhistlePig 13 year old Rye whiskey was drawn from single barrel number 47 and bottled at a natural strength 61.35% ABV in 2015.
WhistlePig named their single cask releases as "Boss Hog: The Spirit of Mortimer" which are dedicated to Mortimer WhistlePig, the farms mascot whom laid down his life in summer 2014 while defending the honour of Mauve WhistlePig, his beloved spouse. On each Boss Hog bottling there is a finely crafted pewter that depicts Mortimer in mid-flight as he wings his way to the pearly gates. RIP Morty.
WhistlePig source their whiskey from Alberta, Canada, where it is distilled and initially aged. This whiskey is transported to WhistlePig Farms in Vermont and subsequently bottled. WhistlePig Farms have recently begun distilling their own whiskey on site, but we could be in for a bit of a wait before we savour the fruits of that labour.
