Old Elk Rum Cask Finished Rye
Rye — USA
Reviewed January 28, 2023
Loads of rum notes on the nose. The entry is soft, sweet and very round. In spite of the high ABV, this goes down like an 80 proof. The whiskey itself has a smooth flavor with accented notes of vanilla, oak and caramel. The short rest in ex-rum casks really does a remarkable transformation on the high rye content. If you like experimental whiskies that tend toward the sweeter side of the spectrum, this will hit the spot. Very nice.
