Island Rooster Kentucky Straight Rye // 750 ml
Chicken Cock Whiskey is resurrecting a rich 160-year-old history with a splash of modernization—because good spirits never go out of style. First established in 1856 in Paris, Kentucky (the heart of Bourbon County), Chicken Cock Whiskey rose to popularity during the 19th century to become a staple of prohibition-era speakeasies, where it was smuggled inside in nondescript tin cans.
Inspired by a trip to the Caribbean where roosters announce the coming day, Chicken Cock Whiskey decided to finish 25 barrels of their signature Kentucky straight rye in Caribbean rum casks. The result is a relaxing blend of spicy notes from the rye with candied molasses notes from the rum barrels. Sun and sand meets the Bluegrass state
— Aroma: An elegant array of spices and pepper, with a hint of rye grassiness and sweet molasses softly touched by oak overtones
— Palate: A tremendous complexity of spices, vanilla, butterscotch, and pepper, beautifully complimented with just enough rum sweetness to complete the full flavor profile
— Finish: Long and enjoyable with forward rye characteristics that are wonderfully enhanced with a touch of sweetness and an amazing buttery mouthfeel
