The Iowa based Templeton Rye Distillery, has announced the launch of the second expression in its limited-edition Barrel Finish Series.
Templeton Rye Caribbean Rum Cask Finish (46% ABV) was initially matured for five years in flame charred American oak barrels, before being finished for six months in ex-dark rum casks from Jamaica.
Templeton Rye Caribbean Rum Cask Finish, is said to deliver notes of ripe bananas, pineapples, aromatic spices and sweet oak on the nose. Followed by notes of rich oak, orange zest, black pepper and dark chocolate on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Tim Grimes, Senior Brand Ambassador of Templeton Rye, said: “We are thrilled to be launching the second limited-edition expression in our Barrel Finish Series following the success of our Maple Cask Finish release last fall. Quality was key as we wanted to ensure that our secondary maturation would impart the rum characteristics and flavours that we envisioned in the whiskey. We are delighted with the result and look forward to sharing with our fans.”
Templeton Rye Caribbean Rum Cask Finish, will initially be available in the US later this month, before being available in select European markets. RRP (tbc).
