Redemption White Rye
Redemption // Indiana, USA
This is an unaged rye from Redemption, the brand made by Bardstown Distillers. It's a 95% rye and 5% barley.
WhiteDistilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.
"If you think unaged whiskeys have jumped the shark, give this one a try. Sure, it's lacking the sophistication of a properly aged whiskey, but you can still invite it to a night out with friends and it won't embarrass you with its immaturity. Nice fruit tea flavors on the palate, with some of that telltale rye spice. Just a slight hint of that acetone thing that tends to accompany unaged whiskeys. Would be great in summer cocktails, if you have a hankering for whiskey, but want to lighten things up."
