Today we have the newest entry in the Old Elk Cask Finish Series on-hand, and I’m pretty excited about this one. I’ve been really attuned to the rhythms of finished rye whiskey in the past few years, and I’m excited to see what some Barbados rum casks will do with Old Elk’s rye.
I’m excited about the newest addition to the Cask Finish Series with our Straight Rye Whiskey Rum Cask Finish, which puts a new twist on our award-winning Rye

Readers who have checked out my reviews of WhistlePig’s Boss Hog and Barrell Seagrass will know my affinity for finished rye. I can’t help but feel excited for this expression.
Most of the flavor in a whiskey comes from the aging process, and the secondary aging of the cask finishes adds incredible depth to these expressions. By resting our whiskies in these unique casks, we can keep the liquid our fans know and love today and enhance the flavor with the cask of another world-class product.
