Templeton Rye Caribbean Rum Cask Finish
This is the second expression in the Templeton Rye Barrel Finish Series. This limited edition rye whiskey was originally matured to perfection for 5 years in traditional American new oak flame charred barrels, before being expertly finished in the finest dark rum casks from the Caribbean island of Jamaica. The additional 6 month maturation time spent in first fill Caribbean rum casks accentuates the rye spice, while adding subtle, exotic flavors and tropical fruit tones. Intense notes of rich oak and orange zest balance spectacularly with honeyed character, married with notes of black pepper and dark chocolate. Natural, non-chill filtered and bottled at 46% ABV, Templeton Rye Caribbean Rum Cask Finish delivers a whiskey bursting with complexity and flavor that is not to be missed.
