Western Reserve Caribbean Rum Cask Finished Straight Rye
This product is sold out
At Western Reserve Distillers we were having fun with secondary finishes, so we decided to take our Straight Rye Whiskey and finish it in Caribbean Rum Casks. We’re so happy we did!
It is bright gold in color but rich in flavor and has all the markers of a straight rye whiskey with beautiful playful spiciness. The rum cask adds a sweetness that transforms the anise, fennel and licorice notes of the rye into something closer to sarsaparilla or root beer. The long finish warms the whole mouth and throat with a light but velvety feeling.
