Sourced from Midwest Grain Products or MGP in Indiana, Redemption Straight Bourbon breaks from the label's tradition of rye whiskey and high-rye bourbon. This bottling is made from a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley (as opposed to 60% corn and 36% rye in their standard bottling). The whiskey is aged for at least two years in new, charred American oak and bottled at 84 proof. Note: Updated packaging as of November 2016.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma is tightly bound to the alcohol. Dry aromas of wood, vanilla, toast, and corn are present but with the heat of ethanol in tow. The palate delivers what the nose promises but with a heavy wood char finish. The whiskey’s best quality is its soft and oily texture. Makes for a welcoming sip to even the newest of whiskey drinkers."
