NOSE Oak, complex dilly spice, baking flour, dried dark fruit, toffee, roasted nuts, copper with a touch of grassy, leathery and sweet tobacco notes. The aroma packs a huge punch with a complex delivery that starts earthy, heads to spices, turns to sweet and dives back to earthy profiles in a deep dark circle. PALATE Oak, complex dilly spice, dried dark fruit, toffee, roasted nuts, leather, grainy sweetness and a touch musty and leathery. Palate keeps the same level of darkness and heaviness but loses some of the earthy tones and picks up some addition grain-sweet notes and a light mustiness. FINISH Long -> Oak, spice, metal, dark fruit and mustiness. The finish on the Redemption 10 Year Barrel Proof Rye is the kind of oaky-spicy fade you’d expect but with a light mustiness that, kinda, reminds me of Old Bottle Effect found in dusties.
