Redemption Whiskey Distillery Tasting Notes

Posted: November 27, 2014 in American Whiskies, Rye

Redemption Rye Whiskey 46%

95% Rye. Aged for 2 years in new American oak

Tasted: Aug 2014

The aromas are quite whisky-like with plenty of youthful green rye and hop-like notes. Hints of orange, creamy oak and gritty, earthy coffee’d tannins emerge. However the creamy oak really begins to assert itself and although it makes the nose quite silky it overtly blankets. 

The palate is a little on the watery side, but pleasantly soft, opening with granulated sugar coated green rye along with hints of coffee’d oak and some darker rye spices. Reasonable length with the bitter oak and herbal notes lingering. The finish is pretty austere as the oak and corn fail to add any balancing sweetness.
