    Tasted on 12-22-2020. So sweet that I thought I was drinking rum!

  2. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The U.S. Government Standards require "rye whiskey" to be made from a
    mash of at least 51% rye grain. Redemption Rye uses a mash of 95%
    premium rye grain for a spicy and bold flavor and they use premium rye,
    which costs more but is well worth it, because when you use good
    ingredients you get good rye whiskey.

  3. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The U.S. Government Standards also
    require that rye whiskey be aged in "new charred oak barrels" which
    means that new oak barrels are burned on the inside, and it`s from the charred wood and the expansion and contraction of the whiskey in and
    through the wood of the barrel through the seasons that whiskey gets its

    amber colour and the flavor is smoothed. The standards do not specify a
    minimum time the rye whiskey needs to stay in the barrel, but once it
    has been in the barrel for 2 years it earns the designation of
    "straight" rye whiskey. Redemption Rye is aged for over 2 years.
