    How was the Boss Hog WhiskyRI? I'm still intending to check it out for myself, but I'd be curious to know your impressions.

    What . . . a . . . crock.

    Yes, it's true, integrity is the main thing so the sooner you learn to fake that the better.

    Re: Whistle Pig Boss-Hog

    Huh, I didn't realize Pickerell was so disingenuous. And I also didn't know that a whistlepig is a woodchuck. Kinda means the Boss Hog name and Winston Churchill looking pig on the label are as inaccurate as their Vermont origins.

    Re: Whistle Pig Boss-Hog

    Yes, whistle pig is a common nick name for groundhogs. One would think that would make a better story for a supposedly Vermont product.

    OK that does it for me. I really enjoy WP but if they are going to lie about it's origins I'm done wtih them. No more purchases for me.
