Old Elk Bourbon (ex-Rum) barrels are secondary barrels that aged bourbon for 2-5 months in 14-year-old Barbados rum barrels, adding richness and tropical sweetness.
in stock

Old Elk took their flagship high malt mash bill bourbon and finished it for 2-5 months in these 14 year Barbados Rum casks. At the end of that resting period, the bourbon had been aged for a total of 5 years. 

The result? A deep, nuanced and full-bodied bourbon that’s been soaking the oak staves of these secondary barrels providing additional notes of tobacco, allspice, and overripe pineapple

The barrels were freshly emptied and then sent to our warehouse. Next up: Your beer, cider, mead, wine or other spirit.
