Description

WhistlePig The Boss Hog | The Samurai Scientist Katakana Edition

On the rare occasion that Dave Pickerell’s five promises are realized, we release a whiskey that epitomizes WhistlePig’s odyssey to unlock the potential of Rye Whiskey.

The Boss Hog Edition 六 is the first American Whiskey finished using Japanese Umeshu, the result of a true collaboration between WhistlePig and Kitaya brewery on Japan’s Kyushu island.

This well aged Straight Rye Whiskey was created using koji fermentation. Each bottle is adorned with The Samurai Scientist – Jōkichi Takamine – who pioneered koji fermentation in the American whisky industry over a century ago.

Each bottle barrel is bottled at strength, between 120 – 122 proof.

 

WhistlePig The Boss Hog | The Samurai Scientist Katakana Editionn Tasting Notes

NOSE
Intensely aromatic, with cinnamon, maple, and toasted marshmallow that develops with time in the glass.
PALATE
Tobacco, ginger, baking spices, and savory umami creating a remarkably rich, nuanced and elegant profile lending to soft, sweet notes that further color the mosaic of flavor.
FINISH
Incredibly long, with oak spice, char, and just a touch of smoke lingers as the finish fades.
