Templeton Rye Releases Caribbean Rum Cask Finish

Templeton Rye Whiskey is proud to announce Caribbean Rum Cask Finish , the highly anticipated 2020 release in their “Barrel Finish Series.”

Templeton Rye Caribbean Rum Cask Finish


This limited-edition American straight rye whiskey was originally matured to perfection
for a period of five years in American oak flame-charred barrels and were specifically
chosen from the distillery’s aging sourced stocks of rye whiskey. Once the “chosen”
barrels were selected, the whiskey was then expertly finished in the finest ex-dark rum
casks from Jamaica. The additional six month maturation time spent in first-fill
Caribbean rum casks accentuates the rye spice while adding subtle, exotic flavors and
tropical fruit tones.

“We are thrilled to be launching the second limited-edition expression in our Barrel
Finish Series following the success of our Maple Cask Finish release last fall,” said Tim
Grimes, Senior Brand Ambassador of Templeton Rye. “Quality was key as we wanted
to ensure that our secondary maturation would impart the rum characteristics and flavors
that we envisioned in the whiskey. We are delighted with the result and look forward to
sharing with our fans.”
