The Rumble in the Jungle was a historic fight that took place between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman in October 1974. Nearly 50 years later, we tip our caps to ‘the greatest sporting event of the 20th century’ with two powerful whiskies! Cask No. 35.290 Float like a Daddy Longlegs was aged 8 years in ex-bourbon cask and lands “punchy notes” of citrus and vanilla.  Much like the odds against an older Ali entering this fight, don’t underestimate the “Light & delicate” flavour profile assigned to this cask…. it punches well above its weight! Cask No. 72.101 Hammer punch perfectly sums up a “Young & spritely” Foreman entering the ring - 4 years in ex-bourbon and another 3 years in a rum cask yields a boisterous dram with rum notes, tropical fruits, herbs and gingery spice. These two heavyweight drams will create a knockout tasting to remember!

If ordered separately: Cask No. 35.290= $100; Cask No. 72.101= $100.
