Redemption Bourbon High-Rye Barrel Proof 54.6% ABV Whiskey
Redemption Bourbon High-Rye Barrel Proof 54.6% ABV Whiskey
This high-rye version of the Redemption barrel proof bourbon is a much better bourbon whiskey than its lower-rye bourbon counterpart. in this new series. The rye is so prominent here that it reminds me of high-rye mash bill you find in some versions of Four Roses. This is an exhilarating addition to the Redemption portfolio that will hold excitement for both rye whiskey lovers and the barrel proof bourbon fans who enjoy a little spice dancing on their palate.
The Bourbon
Redemption Whiskey is distilled by MGP in Indiana, and bottled in Bardstown, Kentucky, with each batch and bottle number hand-written on every label, detailing the contents.I always appreciate it when a whiskey maker is up front and honest about their sourcing. Enthusiasts all know that MGP makes good whiskey, and Redemption does a great job at blending, bottling and marketing it on.
This barrel proof high-rye Bourbon sports a mash bill of (60% corn, 36% rye, 4% barley) which is similar to what archeologists believe George Washington’s bourbon mash bill was back in 1799. This expression has been aged 9 years in charred new oak barrels, and minimally filtered before being bottled at full proof for our enjoyment at a serious 109.2, or an ABV of 54.6%.
This high rye bourbon has dark copper tone when held up to the light with medium legs clinging to the glass. The nose is encrusted with notes of spice, dried dark fruit, caramel, and the alcohol vapors hold a hint of oak and chocolate.
The palate is full of oak, dark fruits, cinnamon spice, black licorice, chocolate, and a slap of mint and pepper. A drop or two of water opens and further exaggerates all of these flavors. The finish leaves the mouth with dried dark fruit sweetness, remnants of an oak barrel with a pronounced oak spice tingle in the back of the throat, and a touch of caramel, chocolate or cocoa and tobacco.
Overall it has a medium balance, a full body and a bit of an oily mouth feel. It’s a bourbon whiskey with an attitude. Rye fans will enjoy this whiskey as it is, yet some of our bourbon only loving sisters and brothers will want to calm this down a little with a splash of water.

Knob Creek 25th Anniversary Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey 121.3 Proof 750 mL
Knob Creek 25th Anniversary Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey 121.3 Proof 750 mL

Twenty-Five years ago, when Booker Noe bottled the first batch of Knob Creek bourbon, he inadvertently started a small batch movement. A quarter century later, Booker’s son Fred Noe carries on his legacy, holding every barrel to the same rigorous Pre-Prohibition style standards. And to this day, Knob Creek remains the benchmark for full-flavored bourbon.

To celebrate the staying power of hard-earned flavor, we’re bottling a limited edition, unfiltered* and cask strength single barrel bourbon. This bourbon is truly a high point in Knob Creek’s proud history. This is our first ever bourbon bottled at barrel strength. Now you can experience the exceptional flavor profile of these personally selected barrels as if you were at the warehouse in Clermont: uncut and unblended.

Jim Murray 2009 Whiskey Bible:

“A classy effortless delivery. The corn-rye integration oozes sophistication and the vanilla-themed oak offers the perfect background. Immediate bitter sweet character celebrates both a raisin-fruity juiciness and a much firmer, burned-honeycombed middle; complex, classy and challenging; thuddingly firm with limited yield. Spices from the rye try to probe the wall but this is the metalled hoof a Kentucky thoroughbred; a very different bourbon that ticks the boxes as they should but throws in a few curve balls for the palate to negotiate.”

Pinhook Bourbon N Rye Straight Kentucky Rye Whiskey 750 mL
Pinhook Bourbon N Rye Straight Kentucky Rye Whiskey 750 mL

"Pinhooking is an old Southern term for the shrewd purchase of very young thoroughbreds. The best pinhookers are brilliant speculators, with powerful gut instincts honed by experience and a deep knowledge of lineage. Lovingly handcrafted and aged in Kentucky, Pinhook Straight Bourbon has in its DNA the richness of the soil, the warmth of goldenrod, the softness of the air and the character and manner of Kentucky horse country.

Each bottle harnesses the spirit of the pinhook—a little daring based on profound understanding of quality. And each release lot will be dedicated to a specific racehorse from Bourbon Lane Stable in Versailles, Kentucky, where successful yearly pinhooks are a way of life."

This straight rye whiskey has bright aromas of fresh apples, licorice root and cinnamon stick that give way to a deep and rich palate of brown sugar, candied black licorice, vanilla bean, raisins and dried apricot.

The Bourbon N Rye release is the first edition of straight rye whiskey produced by Pinhook. The traditional mash bill has over 24 months of barrel age on it. It was blended by Sean Josephs at Castle & Key Distillery in Millville, KY.

Review by Whiskey Wash March 2018

Vital Stats: The label says Distiller’s Cut is a limited release, unfiltered Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. It’s bottled at 100 proof, and aged 5-6 years. On the back of the bottle, they clarify that the whiskey is “quality screened to remove barrel char pieces from the liquid,” and that this process “does not change or lessen the flavor in any way.”

Appearance: The whiskey is a bold, copper color, with super-thin legs that make shapes like robust, rolling hills on the side of the glass. It turned cloudy when I added ice cubes.

Nose: Typical bourbon smells of caramel and light, charred oak are apparent, accompanied by other aromas of candied mango or passionfruit.

Palate: Distiller’s Cut has all the flavors that I would expect from a traditional, classic bourbon. It’s got bold flavor and complexity to set it apart from other bourbon whiskey blends. There are traditional notes of caramel, vanilla and charred oak, but added tastes of cinnamon, allspice, chocolate and tropical fruit provide added complexity. The smooth start is followed by slow-building rye spice that intensifies and then quickly dissipates for a sweet, oaky finish.

Wild Turkey Bourbon-101 1L

Smooth and richly colored, Wild Turkey Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is a genuine super-premium bourbon carefully crafted in the heart of Kentucky. Wild Turkey 101 proof offers a lesson in traditional American values, most notably, the refusal to compromise on standards of excellence.

Wild Turkey 101 proof has an exceptionally soft, but rich aroma for a high proof bourbon, due to quality at all stages of its production. The taste is an American classic with caramel and vanilla and notes of honey and oranges. The finish is very long, rich and full-bodied, powerful, yet soothing.

Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 20 Year Old American Bourbon Whiskey
Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 20 Year Old American Bourbon Whiskey

 "This very rare, limited edition bourbon takes generations of distilling know-how to produce. Only the most careful and expensive distilling method can be used to create a whiskey as special as this one. This is the same distillation as our famous 20 year old Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve. These barrels were carefully selected from the heart of the warehouse. This whiskey should be enjoyed neat. Any ice or water will dilute the uniqueness. Rated "Five Stars" by Paul Pacult." -The Distillery

Ancient Age Kentuckty Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750 mL

Ancient Age from the Buffalo Trace Distillery Since 1946 this bourbon has been held in high regard. 80 proof and distilled from corn, rye and barley malt, it’s smooth and simple, yet robust in its own way. There is much to love about this bourbon that has withstood the test of time.

TASTING NOTES: Features aromas of corn, caramel, toffee and vanilla. Follows through with many of the same but with a hint of spice and a lingering finish hinting of toffee and citrus. REVIEWS: "Recommended" -Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal
