WhistlePig 17 year old The Boss Hog VII: Magellan's Atlantic (Barrel No. 13), 52.6%

Price: $500 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton




This rye, finished in virgin Spanish oak and Brazilian teakwood barrels, has a delicious nose, full of vanilla extract, fresh-baked dough, cinnamon, and nougat. It's consistent on the palate, balancing the sweetness of marshmallow and vanilla frosting with licorice tea, mint, and toasted oak. More toasted oak, cinnamon, and brown sugar on the finish, tinged with bitter black tea. Collectibles
