Starlight Cigar Batch "The Joy Of Starlight, Ep. 7" Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Brazilian Amburana Rum Barrels The Prime Barrel Pick #83



This Starlight Cigar Batch Bourbon is uniquely finished in an Amburana Rum cask. With only four barrels produced, this bourbon offers an exclusive tasting experience.

This bourbon began its journey aging for four years in a new oak barrel, followed by a six-month sojourn in an Amburana rum barrel, contributing to its distinct profile. The Amburana casks have a fascinating history; initially housing bourbon for four fills, then maturing 9 and 11-year-old Barbados rum for six months and finally imparting their rich character to Starlight bourbon for another six months.

The Amburana casks' sixth use delivers a nuanced influence on the nose and palate. Unlike the robust Amburana notes of the Prime Barrel's first fill Cigar Batch, this edition presents a more subdued, sophisticated touch. The Amburana's presence is elegantly balanced, enhancing rather than overpowering, with a subtle molasses undertone from the rum casks.

This 117 proof 4 1/2-year-old Amburana rum finish bourbon is a testimony to Starlight's innovative spirit and commitment to crafting unique flavors. The rarity of this release, with only four barrels in existence, ensures a tasting experience that ventures into new, delightful territories.
