A whisper is a really low amplitude signal.

To record them well, you'll need a really low overall noise floor to match. And you seldom get that in field recording situations.

Personally, I'd go ahead and do the best you can in the field - but expect to loop the sound in post.

The ADR session would be in a proper vocal booth treated to remove virtually all extraneous noise like HVAC, line hum or the like.

Once you have a perfectly clean recording, you can boost or compress the VO as needed.

But again, having a pristine noise floor is the key.

My 2 cents.
