This straight rye whiskey from WhistlePig is inspired by the first recorded circumnavigation of the globe by Magellan. Aged for 17 years in American oak casks with a finish in Spanish oak and American teakwood, The Boss Hog VII: Magellan's Atlantic is bottled at a cask strength of 59.6% ABV.
The nose opens with woody, nutty aromatics of cinnamon, allspice and sticky maple syrup. Upon tasting there are maraschino cherries, cloves and fruit cake coated in a dark chocolate glaze. A lingering finish of more charred oak and warming spices.
