Taconic Distillery Rolling Hills Rum
Taconic Distillery // USA
Taconic Distillery's Hudson Valley facility produces primarily bourbon and other whiskeys. The single rum, like all their spirits featuring a label with Copper, the family foxhound, is made from molasses, aged two years in bourbon barrels, then their own rye barrels. It is cut to proof with estate spring water.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
Cask Typeex-bourbon and rye
"Notes of bourbon, caramel and vanilla dominate a nose with thoughtfully restrained heat. On the palate, wood is more apparent, some toasty caramel emerges, and spicy rye begins to take over from the more polite bourbon. Whispers of baking spice continue into the medium finish. There's not much complexity here, but in compensation there's also a to-the-manor-born air of good breeding."
