Redemption Straight Rye Whiskey 750ml

SKU #1058889 Whisky Advocate

 The back label of this whiskey describes it as ďfeisty,Ē and feisty it is! Brandishing 95% rye (another Canadian flavoring whisky that was diverted?), bottled at 46%, and at a relatively young age (around two years old), this whiskey lets you know you are alive. Itís very spicy, with crisp evergreen, warming cinnamon, clove, rooty licorice, dark chocolate, and suggestions of gin botanicals. Spicy, vibrant finish. Iím having fun drinking this au naturel (the whiskey, that is), but this would also zing in a cocktail, the same way smoky Islay whiskies make their presence known in a blended scotch. Value Pick.

Wine Enthusiast

 This high-rye spirit (close to 95% rye) is manly and rugged, like chewing on saddle leather. Elegant, straight-edge bottle design. Golden color and medium body. Aromas evoked burnt orange peel and ripe cheeses, while the flavors were boldly oaky and bitter, with notes of tobacco, leather and black tea. Dry, short, stinging finish.  (11/ 2010)

K&L Notes

This American Straight Rye captures the essence of young rye whiskey perfectly. Boasting a mash bill featuring 95% rye, those classic flavors shine right through the charred American oak. Dust and earth, coupled with the spicy, zesty rye kernal softened by a touch of vanilla oakiness. Great for mixing!

My personal favorite as far as rye goes. I've used this in my cocktail classes for the last several years, and it's not too over the top, for a rye, allowing it to play well with others (other spirits!).

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
