A straight American bourbon whiskey from the Redemption range, featuring a rather high rye content and aged over 3 years. Take a look at the mash bill proudly displayed on the bottle and you’ll see the very specific listings of “38.2% premium rye, 1.8% barley malt, 60% corn.” It’s a spicy little number, that’s for sure. The Redemption name was chosen to reflect the idea of Rye re-claiming its status – prior to prohibition, it was the #1 selling type of whiskey. Each bottle of Redemption whiskey is hand-numbered to reflect the batch and bottle, a sign of the attention to detail put into making the final product.
Redemption High Rye Bourbon Tasting Notes
Nose| Oak driven and layered with rich notes of pine, dilly spice, cherry heavy dark fruit, caramel, vanilla, cocoa and pepper. There is a light bit of frosting-like sweetness underneath and water brings out additional nutty notes.
Palate| Oak, dark fruit, dilly spice, black licorice, vanilla, chocolate orange, honey and a bit of pepper and mint. Water brings the dilly spice a bit higher and a nutty character shows up along with a light bit of blackberry licorice.
Finish| Long drift of spice, dill, oak, caramel, toasted grains and mint.
