An interesting Caribbean twist to Canadian Rye Whiskey.

Founder Don Livermore has PhD in Wood Science. Since Whiskey gets most of it flavor from the wood it ages in, that’s really saying something, right? Pike Creek is a Canadian company making classic Canadian-style Whiskey — which means high-rye. But what sets Pike Creek apart is that that they age their Whiskey in the temperamental climate of Ontario, Canada — just west of Detroit, Michigan. The warehouse has no climate control, so the barrels expand and contract far more than most in the hot, humid summers and cold, dry Winters. 

Pike Creek 10 Year Old Rum Barrel Finished… the name alone has just about all the information that you need to know. This is a ten year old, Canadian-style Rye Whiskey that has spent the last several months of tis aging in ex-Rum casks. This is a recent change for Pike Creek. The first version of their signature spirit was finished in Port casks. The change brings a bit more sweetness and lets the Whiskey have more of a savory richness.

Jesse
Jesse,
I don't really taste the run all that much, despite some reviews I've read. To me it's just a basic whisky without too much complexity or depth. Not bad, but not interesting.

Jeff,
Brown sugar and Vanilla make this taste like a dessert whiskey! Dark fruit and molasses round out this offering.
 
Matt
Matt,
Really surprised this has such a low rating; I think it’s fantastic! Really smooth whiskey with coconut flavors from the rum barrel aging. A great after dinner drink. This would pair amazingly with bananas foster for desert.

Ronald,
6/10 is for too low a score. This is a lovely whiskey and a jem to find here in the UK, as I have had to bring back other single malts with me back from my home country. Flaviar? Glenora hint, hint!!
