Chicken Cock Island Rooster Kentucky Straight Rye is a unique rye whiskey finished in Caribbean rum casks. This Kentucky Straight Rye takes inspiration from the Caribbean roosters that greet the dawn. The rye whiskey is aged for an undisclosed time and then finished in rum casks, resulting in a flavor profile that combines the spicy rye notes with hints of rum sweetness and tropical influence.

Description

Nose

Spicy Rye: The initial aroma is likely dominated by the rye grain, presenting a peppery kick with hints of herbal rye grass.

Subtle Rum Influence: Look for wisps of sweetness reminiscent of rum, possibly with hints of vanilla and brown sugar peeking through.

Oak: A touch of oaky notes might be present from the original aging, adding a hint of dryness and warm spice.

Palate

Rye Spice: The rye spice should carry over from the nose, offering a peppery tingle on the tongue.

Caramelized Sugars: The rum cask influence might manifest as notes of butterscotch, toffee, or even hints of tropical fruits like pineapple or guava, depending on the rum used for finishing.

Vanilla: A touch of vanilla sweetness can complement the rye spice and rum character, creating a more balanced profile.

Oak: Subtle oak notes might add complexity and dryness, hinting at the whiskey’s base maturation.

Finish

Lingering Rye Spice: The rye spice should linger on the finish, offering a warming and slightly peppery aftertaste.

Rum Sweetness: A subtle echo of rum sweetness might linger, complementing the rye spice and creating a unique finish.

Drying Oak: The oak influence might become more noticeable on the finish, adding a touch of dryness and tannic structure.
