We took an 8-year HAZMAT rye whiskey and finished it in a barrel that had been used to age a 6-year HAZMAT rum. That’s about as unique as it gets.
We selected this exceptional barrel from Yahara Bay Distillers in Madison, WI. This Straight Rye Whiskey (95% rye, 5% malted barley) endured 8 glacially-frigid Wisconsin winters before, at long last, escaping to a tropical paradise – a rum barrel. Sweet and spicy with an impeccable blend of Midwest hospitality and gentle island breezes, our rum barreled straight rye whiskey is truly the best of both worlds.
Tasting Notes: Complex and sweet with notes of maple syrup, orange peel, plum, caramel creams, and baking spices.
