Sagamore Rum Cask (special edition)

For this expression, 5 and 6 year-old straight rye whiskies are placed some in ex-rum casks from South America, and the rest in barrels from Jamaica, aging both for an additional 10 months. Once maturation was complete, the whiskey from both barrels were then blended back together. The Jamaican rum barrels contribute notes of ripe banana and bright pineapple, balanced by the rich vanilla and brûléed sugar character of the South American rum barrels—a unique combination enhancing the spice of their rye.
Nose: Tropical fruits, ripe banana, pineapple, brûléed sugar, toasted coconut, citrus peel, molasses, Demerara sugar, spice cake, and dried florals.
Palate: Demerara sugar, ripe banana, passion fruit, spiced pineapple, vanilla, dried florals, peanut brittle, and cinnamon bark on the palate with a peppery finish.
