Whistlepig-Rye-Whiskey-The-Boss-Hog-The-Samurai-Scientist

The Whistlepig lineup of whiskey is something to yee-haw about, and now their ultimate iteration bows with influence from Japanese koji fermentation, hence the name. The Samurai Scientist is the very first American Whiskey finished using Japanese Umeshu wood barrels from the Kitaya brewery on Japan’s Kyushu island. The result is a barrel strength 16-year old rye whiskey with hints of umami never experienced before in an American rye. The 120-122 proof whiskey also gets the honor of having Jōkichi Takamine’s likeness on the label, the man who pioneered koji fermentation in the American whiskey industry over a hundred years before.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
