Whistle Pig The Boss Hog 6th Edition


Category: Product ID: 3003


 Whistle pig the Boss Hog 6th Edition is the Boss Hog series and one of our personal favourites.
The Samurai Scientist is named after Jokichi Takamine, a legendary Japanese chemist who pioneered koji fermentation in the American whiskey industry in the nineteenth century. The limited-edition whiskey Whistle Pig “The Boss Hog 6th Edition is the result of a genuine collaboration between WhistlePig’s team and Japanese brewers from Kitaya, an award-winning sake, shochu, and umeshu producer in Fukuoka Prefecture on Japan’s Kyushu Island. Saikoo, a uniquely traditional, aged umeshu made by Kitaya, is used. The whiskey was distilled using koji fermentation in Canada and aged for sixteen years before being finished in umeshu seasoned barrels and hand bottled on the WhistlePig Farm.

WhistlePig Boss Hog 16 Year Old – Samurai Scientist is an intriguing expression inspired by Japanese chemist Jokichi. Takamine, who changed the face of American whisky with the introduction of koji fermentation. On the nose, there are notes of sweet marshmallow, maple syrup, and a hint of cinnamon. It lead to a richer palate with notes of spiced ginger, tobacco, and Japanese umami.
