Tale 2: Barrell Bourbon Tale of Two Islands Rum/Islay Cask Finish





For this limited Barrell Bourbon Cask Finish Tale of Two Islands Rum/Islay Finish, we took the empty casks that held our Tale of Two Islands Rum, and used them to finish a blend of straight bourbon whiskeys. This is a classic bourbon with notes from the sweetness of the rum and the smokiness of the Islay casks.



Nose: All the hallmarks of high-rye bourbon are tinted with the smoke of Islay malt. It singes the sage, torches the marshmallow, flambés the banana, and grills the peach. Apricot and candied cherry round out the stone fruit character while coconut macaron complements the banana.



Palate: Dark chocolate, espresso, and malty porter set the stage. They usher in a different side of Islay, this time its tarry, inky side. The texture is waxy with some gritty tannin that highlights its chalky mineral character. Underneath, it's still a fruity bourbon, exhibiting notes of candied lemon peel, nectarine, and plum sauce, all enhanced by the rum that previously sat in the barrel.



Finish: The waxy texture turns greasy with clarified butter, brisket, and lemon oil. They leave behind burnt caramel, blackberry, and peppercorn.









The holiday season is behind us, but Valentine's Day is on the horizon.
