This limited edition release began in 2006 when two barrels of American Oak were aged gracefully for nine years. Afterward, the contents of the barrels were transferred to Caribbean rum casks for another six years, bringing the total age of this bourbon to 15 years. Extremely rare, this release may just be the oldest rum cask finished bourbon ever produced.
Tasting notes describe the aroma of vanilla, caramel, and candied nuts that give way to leather and coconut. Finally fading to the notes brought in from the long rum finish, aromas of molasses, brown sugar, and candied fruit. Sweet flavors of toffee and toasted sugar with vanilla. This bourbon has a viscous mouthfeel and pleasant aftertaste that lingers on the palate.
