Midwest Grain Products (MGP) in Lawrenceburg, Indiana produces Temptation Straight Bourbon Whiskey from a mash of 75% corn, 20% rye and 5% malted barley. Much like the other whiskies in the Redemption family, it is aged for a minimum of two years in new, charred American oak casks before being brought to proof and bottled by hand. As a result of having more corn as than traditional bourbon mash bills, Temptation Bourbon has a sweeter flavor profile than your average bourbon and is bottled at the slightly lower than normal proof of 82.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is sweet with corn and caramel with just a touch of spice and hints of over-ripe bananas and coconut. Flavors of dusty wood, toffee, cola nut, and baking spice dominate with nuanced anise and black pepper undertones. The finish is short with a sweet and spicy balance between corn and cracked pepper.
