Rolling Fork 9 Year Single Cask Barbados Fourquare Rum
Rolling Fork was founded by friends Jordan Morris and Turner Wathen with the intention of sourcing great rum from around the world, free of any additives, with a particular eye to the whiskey drinking palate. Both from Kentucky, Turner even hailing from a long line of bourbon makers, they wanted to bottle rums that would successfully expose the massive bourbon drinking populace to a wider world of spirits. Their first bottling, ostensibly made by accident, was a blend of Trinidad rum and rye whiskey, which they bottled as Fortuitous Union. They've since turned to bottling proper rums all on their own, at high proofs, re-casking them in first fill bourbon barrels to accentuate those spicy, vanilla, and woodsy notes that bourbon drinkers are so familiar with.
