The name says it all. This is their biggest, most profound whisky for the Boss Hog in all of us. They commit 5 promises to each edition of The Boss Hog: single barrel, bottled at barrel proof, powerfully complex, distinctly unique from anything they have ever done and stupendous!
This is the 5th edition, The Spirit of Mauve, it is a celebration of Mauve, one of their founding celebrity pigs. Mauve's lover, Mortimer was tragically killed defending her honour in 2014 and was memorialized in The Boss Hog, IInd Edition, The Spirit Of Mortimer. Mauve heroically preserved for the sale of their son, Mortimer Jr, but sadly joined Mortimer in heaven on Valentines Day. The pain of a broken heart can prove too much for even the strongest of pigs. The Spirit Of Mauve is a 13 year old straight rye whisky finished in Calvados casks in honour of Mauves undying love of apples! The result is extraordinary. A fine balance between American power and French sophistication. There's nothing else like it.
