Tasting Notes

Rolling Fork’s Single Cask Jamaican 14 Year Rum is an aged rum produced by Rolling Fork Spirits in Starlight, Indiana. Pot distilled from molasses in December 2007 by an undisclosed distillery in Jamaica, this single cask was aged in an ex-bourbon barrel for a total of 14 years—3 years tropical aging in Jamaica and 11 years continental aging in Liverpool, UK, with an additional 6-month maturation at Rolling Fork’s Starlight, IN, rickhouse.

Distilled from the WPL marque with ester levels between 60–119 gr/hL AA (grams per hectoliter of absolute alcohol), this is a beautifully nuanced expression from the island known for producing the funkiest rums on the planet. On the nose, aromas of butterscotch, warm banana bread, and cinnamon with a hint of limestone minerality transition to a fruity and vivacious palate of papaya, charred pineapple, and plantain. The finish sees a big hit of clove along with mint and tobacco.
