Kentucky Owl Whiskey Announces Mardi Gras XO Cask

Kentucky Owl Whiskey, a historic and award-winning brand, has announced the release of a new holiday whiskey: the limited edition Kentucky Owl Mardi Gras XO Cask. The company created their new Mardi Gras XO Cask in order to celebrate the unique culture of Mardi Gras and Louisiana as a whole. The drink began with the company's 11- year-old Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey, which was then finished in their Bayou Rum XO Casks for over a year. This delicious seasonal whiskey contains notes of toasted rye bread, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg.

The idea for the Mardi Gras XO Cask came to Bayou Rum Master Blender Reiniel Vicente Diaz as he watched a set of barrels roll in from Kentucky and thought to himself "there's a lot of good times rolling around in these barrels," a phrase that immediately reminded him of the laissez-faire culture Mardi Gras is known for. From that moment, this seasonal whiskey blend was born. The Mardi Gras XO Cask is bottled at 102.8 proof with a suggested retail price of about $500, so make sure to grab a bottle as soon as you can.

A Tasty Drink from a Renowned Company

Kentucky Owl was originally founded in 1879, and has since went on to win many awards and impress whiskey fanatics around the world. One of their most impressive accolades include the Double Gold Medal at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Their products have become a sensation in the world of high-quality, artisanal alcoholic beverages, and many of their batches sell out almost exclusively by word-of-mouth.
