Magellan's Atlantic is the 7th edition in Whistlepig's Boss Hog series. The journey begins with a straight rye whiskey which aged for 17 years in American oak. Then the rye is transferred to Spanish oak for its next maturation which lasts for 3 weeks. Finally, the rye is placed into South American teakwood sourced from Brazil where it spends 3 days before bottling.

These are single barrel expressions so the proof ranges from 105.1-107.8 depending on the barrel. Like previous editions, the brand's pig mascot adorns the top in a collectible pewter topper, this time dressed in traditional Spanish dress.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma of this whiskey is rather unique with the teakwood bringing a musky almost incense like aroma. The spices found are more of the sweet nature rather than the hot/peppery ones. As you taste, the rye is moderately full on the palate with those notes found in the aroma continuing on the taste. The rye is warming on the palate, but not harsh without water. The finish has almost a mulled wine quality to it. The length is long lasting and thought provoking. It's refreshing not to have yet another wine finished whiskey. "
