    Re: Whistle Pig Boss-Hog

    We sell a lot of WhistlePig 10yo at the restaurant I work at and quite a bit of the WP 111/11yo as well, so I am sure we will be getting some of this in. I like the 10 the 11 and the LSB, so the Boss Hog certainly interests me.

    Re: Whistle Pig Boss-Hog

    I will say I have spent more on a bottle and since I have a soft spot in my wallet for WP I would jump at a bottle, except we don't get it here. So if anyone is willing to help a brother out.....

    Re: Whistle Pig Boss-Hog

    I'm curious about the provenance of the WP bottlings. The first releases were clearly listed and labeled as being products of Canada. The more recent releases, including the subject Boss Hog, are listed as originating in Vermont, and being "domestic".

    Also what is the significance (if any) of the recent labeling as being "Fininshed in bourbon barrels"?

    Re: Whistle Pig Boss-Hog

    Must say, those are some cool graphics. As for the 'Bourbon barrel finished' line that reminds me of the 'charcoal filtered' comment that appeared on some Bourbon labels in the past.

    Good catch John. I'd infer, American-distilled (LDI/MGPI?), bottled in Vermont, and given a final treatment in a bourbon cask.

    It is what it is. I like Whistlepig, though I have never paid for a bottle.

    At that price Winston I would like it as well.

    Re: Whistle Pig Boss-Hog

    Over the weekend I bought a bottle of Lock Stock and Barrel Rye and to me it tastes exactly like Whistlepig, except that LS&B was a lot smoother.

    Re: Whistle Pig Boss-Hog

    Julio's in Westboro, MA is hosting a Boss Hog event tomorrow night for those in the greater Boston Area. I'm planning on attending so I can taste it.
