Originally used for aging Hemingway Rye Whiskey before being filled with Papa's Pilar Rum, these freshly dumped barrels bring a rich blend of flavors and a notable history. The barrels start with the spicy and earthy tones of Hemingway Rye whiskey, creating a complex foundation. With the introduction of Papa's Pilar Rum, the barrels gain a new character - a mix of bold, tropical sweetness nuanced by the spicy, earthy background of the rye whiskey.
