Good things come in three and when it comes to whiskey its thrice as nice. Redemption Whiskey has added a trio of limited-edition aged barrel proof expressions to its annual barrel strength collection: Straight Rye (Aged 10 Years), Bourbon (Aged 9 Years), and High Rye Bourbon (Aged 10 Years).
The Redemption Aged Barrel Proof selections are created with the same distillates and mash bills as Redemption’s core whiskies: Straight Rye, Bourbon, and High Rye Bourbon. Aged between 9-10 years in charred new oak barrels and minimally filtered, these are bottled at cask strength.
The Aged Barrel Proof Straight Rye is 95% rye, 5% malted barley and gives notes of dark caramel, vanilla and ginger. The Aged Barrel Proof High-Rye Bourbon has notes of honey, toffee and roasted nuts, with a mash bill that is 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% malted barley. The Aged Barrel Proof Bourbon is 76% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley. It has a smoked meat and bacon flavor for you carnivores.
Redemption’s new packaging takes cues from a bygone era when rye was king in America and each bottle features the story about America’s whiskey revival printed on the back of a cherry wood label.
Redemption Whiskey is distilled in Indiana and bottled in small batches in Bardstown, KY, with each batch and bottle number on every label. The Redemption portfolio includes Redemption Rye Whiskey, Redemption High Rye Bourbon, Redemption Bourbon, and a limited-edition Wheated Bourbon, released in June 2017.
The Redemption Aged Barrel Proof collection will be available this month in select U.S. markets at $99.99 per bottle.
