About the Kentucky Cask Series
The award-winning Kentucky Cask Series features small-batch rums partially aged in Kentucky and blended by RFS founders Turner Wathen and Jordan Morris. The founders blend each limited release for a flavor profile lending itself to extended aging in hand-selected casks in Kentucky bourbon warehouses.
About Batch No. 2020B1
For the inaugural release of the award-winning Kentucky Cask Series, we blended a small batch of rum distilled in El Salvador. To reinforce the subtle sweetness of this aged rum, the founders selected several American Oak Kentucky bourbon barrels and rye whiskey barrels to add sweet notes of vanilla, caramel, floral and citrus. To balance these sweet flavors, some of the rum was aged in French Oak port casks and sherry casks. The casks add strong baking spice, hazelnut, and dark fruit notes. After two Kentucky summers in a bourbon warehouse, the founders blended the casks to achieve a well-balanced rum. It highlights the hand-selected barrels, and unique aging characteristics only available in Kentucky. This release is bottled at cask strength.
