This year marks the ninth edition of the Whistlepig The Boss Hog series from Whistlepig, called The Boss Hog Ix: Siren’s Song.
This bottling was inspired by the Nine Muses of Greek mythology. As usual for this release, the whiskey is aged in American oak and then finished in two types of seasoned casks: a Greek fig nectar and a farm-scratch Tentura, a Greek liqueur.
The cask finishes for this particular edition were crafted by Whistlepig whiskey makers: Liz Rhoades and Meghan Ireland. The duo was inspired by the Muses of Greek Mythology – each of whom is depicted on one of nine bespoke pewter toppers: Calliope, Clio, Erato, Euterpe, Melpomene, Polyhymnia, Terpsichore, Thalia, and Urania. The back label of The Boss Hog IX comes equipped with NFC technology, enabling collectors to authenticate and register their treasure with one tap of a smartphone.
Whistlepig The Boss Hog Ix: Siren’s Song is a single barrel expression bottled at cask proof. The ABV ranges from 51.3% to 53.1% (102.5-106.2 proof). Available as of October 2022. (SRP $599.99)
