Rolling Fork Rum Releases 3 Exclusive Casks with OHLQ

I don't usually cover non-whiskey products, but the company reached out so I thought I'd share with my readers. 

Rolling Fork Rum announces its first release of three private casks of cask-strength, aged rums in partnership with Ohio Liquor (OHLQ).  OHLQ visited Rolling Fork at Starlight Distillery in southern Indiana to select three casks for release exclusively at OHLQ locations. One cask is part of The Lost Cask Collection (rare, single-barrel, long-aged rums). Two casks are part of The Rolling Fork Single Cask Series, which are created through secondary maturation in highly sought-after whiskey casks that are hand-selected by Rolling Fork co-founders Jordan Morris and Turner Wathen to bring unique and complex flavor combinations to the rums. 

The offering includes:

"We're excited to be the only state offering these special rum barrels and are thrilled that Rolling Fork has chosen to be a part of Ohio’s booming high-proof spirits environment,” said Jim Canepa, Superintendent of the Ohio Division of Liquor.

Bottles will hit store shelves in September, and are available exclusively at OHLQ locations until they are sold out. These are one-of-a kind, limited-quantity rums, and when they are gone, they are gone. Retail prices range from $79.63 - $159.96.

“We love Ohio’s enthusiasm for high quality private casks,” said Jordan Morris, co- founder of Rolling Fork. “While rum is sometimes overlooked when compared to popular spirits like bourbon and rye, any high-end spirits enthusiast – and certainly every rum drinker – will love these aged, cask-strength rums.” 

About Rolling Fork: Rolling Fork Spirits was founded by Turner Wathen and Jordan Morris in 2017. The Rolling Fork portfolio includes two collections: Lost Cask Collection and Rolling Fork Series. SRPs range from $85 to $299 per 750ml bottle.

My Take

I'm not a rum person so I'll be sitting this one out and I don't have any experience with Rolling Fork. I do like that they are smaller distillery out of what appears to be Indiana. If you're a bourbon drinker and give this expression a go, I'd love to hear about your experience in the comment box below.
