Tasting Notes

"Redemption and MGP are both well known for their high-rye whiskeys, so a wheated bourbon is an intriguing change of pace. This one still has a very pleasant spice, perhaps due to its 96 proof. It offers soft vanilla, walnut, and gentle floral notes on the palate, and a lingering, warming finish. Redemption's first wheated bourbon is a highly enjoyable addition to the line."
