A Dark rum finished, small batch, cask strength, non-chill filtered 10 year old blend with transparency at its core. Since the incipient of Killowen Distillery, they have been carefully sourcing whiskeys that are a minimum of ten years old from different distilleries all across Ireland. Throughout this time they also hunted the globe for the finest casks to complement certain flavour notes in the blends.
This whiskey is the first of a set of different whiskeys that will be released over the coming months. The creators have advised the whiskey can be slightly diluted to suit the consumer. Finishing only 348 50cl bottles, The Jamaican Dark Rum Cask was specifically chosen for its nose and freshness, creating a small batch spirit with a full bodied experience.

|Nose||A balance of coconut and banana on one hand with vanilla and candy orange on the other. A mild spice towards the end of the arrival.|
|Palate||A marriage of apricot and coconut flesh from the start with a large vanilla influence, vanilla not just from the American oak sap, but also from the casks’ previous dark rum contents.|
|Finish||A long Brown Sugar finish with chunks of butterscotch returning to apricot with a hint of Coffee.|
