Le Paradis - Cognac Cask Finished Rum
Age: 2 years, 3 months
Finished In: 500 Liter French Oak Cognac Cask
Bottles Produced: 441
Details: In Cognac, ‘Le Paradis’ refers to the special part of the
cellar where the best barrels and spirit lots are stored, often in a
iron cage under lock and key. We received this Cognac cask from
our friends at Other Half Brewing. This special cask was sent to us
fresh, Other Half wanted us to have the inspiration of a fresh start.
Now that we’ve finished our process, the cask will be sent back to
them for brewing a specialty and rare batch of beer. We knew we
wanted to finish something very special in the cask, so we
selected two rich and fully textured rums that had been aged two
years in new American oak. During the cask finishing, the tobacco,
and smokey notes of the two rum selections became married with
the golden raisin, hay, and coconut aromas of the Cognac cask.
This special union created a flavor never before experienced in
the Privateer cellars.
