Collection Includes Straight Rye, High Rye Bourbon, and Bourbon Aged 9-10 Years.

Redemption Whiskey, recognized for producing quality whiskies with high rye content, adds 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), available in select markets in the United States. Redemption’s barrel proof expressions consistently receive top accolades – both 10 Year offerings were awarded Double Gold at the San Francisco International Wine Competition in 2017.

The Redemption Aged Barrel Proof selections are created with the same distillates and mash bills as Redemption’s core whiskies: Straight Rye (95% rye, 5% barley), Bourbon (75% corn, 21% rye, 4% barley), and High Rye Bourbon (60% corn, 36% rye, 4% barley). Aged between 9-10 years in charred new oak barrels and minimally filtered, these are bottled at cask strength. The combination of high rye content, high proof and patient ageing delivers whiskies with exceptional taste. Additionally, 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.

The Redemption Aged Barrel Proof collection will be available this month in select U.S. markets and includes the following:

Redemption Aged Barrel Proof Straight Rye: 10 Years (116.2 Proof; $99.99 SRP)

*Won Double Gold at the 2017 San Francisco International Wine Competition

Tasting Notes: On the nose, aromas of dark caramel, molasses, and vanilla settle over unexpected notes of freshly cut grass and a hint of ginger. A spicy rye taste is evolved with flavors of dark chocolate, liquorice, and fennel laced together by herbs such as cardamom, black pepper, and tarragon. A long and mellow finish round out this true expression of rye.

Mash Bill: 95% rye, 5% malted barley

Redemption Aged Barrel Proof High-Rye Bourbon: 10 Years (114.8 Proof; $99.99 SRP)

*Won Double Gold at the 2017 San Francisco International Wine Competition

Tasting Notes: With a mash bill that features 36% rye, this whiskey’s silky texture is rounded out by a flavorful, spicy undertone. Smooth honey, toffee, and roasted nut flavors make their way to the forefront of the palate, while this bourbon’s finish brings exotic star anise, nutmeg, and lemongrass notes. A fragrance of rich vanilla oak, aged balsamic, and violet complete this 10-year-old expression’s flavor profile.

Mash Bill: 60% corn, 36% rye, 4% malted barley

Redemption Aged Barrel Proof Bourbon: 9 Years (108.2 Proof; $99.99 SRP)

Tasting Notes: A smooth, smoked meat and bacon flavor is nuanced by notes of hops, white pepper spice, and wet river stone in this mellow aged bourbon. Fresh Madagascan vanilla pod, caramelized toffee, and dark roast coffee dictate the aroma of this barrel proof expression, while notes of lavender and honey bring a soft, floral scent.

Mash Bill: 76% corn, 21% rye, 4% malted barley
