Redemption Barrel Proof 6 Year Straight Rye
Redemption // Indiana, USA
The folks at Redemption Rye (made by Bardstown Barrel Selctions) have released a limited edition barrel proof rye. This fella is 95% rye and 5% barley.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
"If I could use one word to describe this, it would be "burly." Seriously, sipping it, I can picture a lumberjack with a flask just before single-handedly lifting a giant tree limb. Huge flavors of caramel, spice (both hot and sweet), vanilla and pipe tobacco. The only thing subtle is a grassy note at the end. For those who are into a very big, classic, hot rye, this is for you. Definitely add water or ice to this. You are a wuss NOT to."
