Distillery Notes:

Single Barrel, Bottled at Proof, Powerfully Complex, Distinctly Unique From Anything We’ve Done Before. Stupendous.

An epic sequel to the World’s Best Rye, The Boss Hog VIII: LapuLapu’s Pacific completes our journey around the world, unfurling a chronicle as rich and bold as the whiskey itself.

Upon crossing the Pacific, Captain Magellan met his fate at the hands of the legendary Filipino warrior LapuLapu. A fierce and vociferous defender of independence, LapuLapu led his island home against the Spaniards. There he forged a successful fortification, staving off colonial occupation for more than forty years.

In honor of our new hero, this rare edition sees a double finish in high toast, small batch, single island Philippine Rum casks, adding layers of warm spice and delicate tropical notes to an already deeply complex, well aged Rye Whiskey. LapuLapu’s Pacific is a profound statement of strength and independence, a spectacular sequel to Magellan’s Atlantic.

This rare and outstandingly complex whiskey is barrel strength, bottled between 104.8 and 106.6 proof.

Tasting Notes:

NOSE: Rich lush vanilla aromas give way to delicate tropical notes including underripe bananas, freshly picked lemon and molasses

PALATE: Abundant fresh ground cinnamon with citrus zest, butterscotch, and light notes of toffee
FINISH: Tanned leather, light brown sugar, nutmeg and allspice with a long-lasting black pepper rye spice

"Honey and stone fruit aromas abound in this Rye, underlying peppery linseed and the slightest hint of chilli give a minerality and complexity that are softened with buttery fruity and rich raisin characters."

Collectible - Whisky Advocate
"Earthy and pleasantly pungent on the nose, softening in the glass and yielding to aromas of cooked dark fruit, figs, raisins, and nougat. The palate is chewy, rich, and has balanced heat—offering flavors of raspberry preserves and other jammy fruits, along with cinnamon and dark chocolate. Excellent length on a finish of sweet vanilla and more cinnamon, plus subtle red fruit, sweet corn, and an earthy note at the end."

"Aged nearly 18 years, then finished in single island Philippine rum barrels. The end result is rich vanilla and allspice aromas, with a hint of sarsaparilla. The palate opens with bold molasses and maple sugar, then dries to a spicy, peppery, astringent exit." - Wine Enthusiast
