They’ve got a lot of reputable names in stock, with the option to rent pieces by the week or the month or even purchase the piece. So quit fantasizing; start living the dream at HauteVault.com

Harsh winters call for the warmth of a good rye whiskey and stocking your bar with WhistlePig’s latest will surely warm your belly and rose your cheeks. This special run of whiskey consists of the 24 oldest barrels WhistlePig has to offer. What’s really interesting about Boss Hog rye is that it’s 100 percent single grain rye whiskey which means there has been no water added to the casks. But the distillers warn it is not for the faint of heart. Touting a hefty barrel proof of about 134 after aging for 12 and a half years, Boss Hog is a first for rye whiskey.
