Chicken Cock Whiskey Island Rooster Rum Barrel Rye Whiskey

Chicken Cock tells has released a new and limited-edition expression called the Island Rooster Rum Barrel Rye. The new expression starts with Chicken Cock’s Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey and is finished in Caribbean rum casks for at least six months.

Bourbon expert Tom Fischer tasted a pre-release version of it earlier in 2022 with Chicken Cock Whiskey Master Distiller Gregg Snyder on this video link and also below.

Island Rooster is available for the suggested retail price of $199.99 per 750ml bottle in the following states: CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, KY, MA, NO, NY, SC, TN, TX, and WI.

The brand says it was inspired by a trip to the Caribbean, where roosters announce the coming day.

They finished 25 barrels of our Signature Kentucky Straight Rye  Whiskey in Caribbean rum casks.

From spicy notes of the rye to candied molasses notes from the rum barrels, it is well-balanced, bold and original.
