Introducing WhistlePig's The Boss Hog V: The Spirit of Mauve, a rye whiskey that promises a unique experience, enhanced by its Calvados cask finish. This expression, with its medium-dark orange-brown hue, is a testament to WhistlePig's commitment to innovation and craftsmanship.

Heritage: WhistlePig is renowned for its dedication to producing top-tier rye whiskies. The Spirit of Mauve, with its subtle Calvados cask influence, showcases the brand's adventurous spirit and willingness to experiment.

Profile:

  • Nose: The aroma presents faint hints of aloe vera, characteristic of a rye whiskey. Lime peel intertwines with a savory undertone, while a gentle fruitiness, reminiscent more of pears than apples, possibly from the Calvados cask finish, lingers in the background. The nose is reserved, inviting deeper exploration.

  • Palate: The initial taste is subdued, gradually revealing its character towards the mid-palate. The aloe vera note is more pronounced, complemented by the herbal essence of mentholated cough drops. As it evolves, the Calvados cask influence emerges with subtle orchard fruit flavors. The effervescent texture tingles the palate, leading to a finish marked by a chalky minerality. The lingering warmth slightly numbs the tongue, with a hint of ginger bidding a final farewell.

Bottle Engraving: The distinctive bottle of WhistlePig's The Boss Hog V offers an excellent canvas for personalized engraving. Add a memorable message, a date, or a custom design to transform this already special whiskey into a prized possession, perfect for gifting or commemorating significant milestones.
