Detailed Description of Redemption Rye Whiskey
This Redemption rye whiskey in stock was laid down in barrels in 1998 at the old Seagram’s distillery in Lawrenceburg Indiana, where all Redemption Whiskey has ever been produced.
This 18 Year-Old exhibits the ageability of rye. Expect subtle floral notes, grippy oak that’s not overwhelming, mint, grilled citrus, and baking spices. Bottled at 109.9 proof with only 600 bottles available.
At 54.95% ABV, Redemption 18-Year-Old Barrel Proof Rye features a refined balance of sweet cedar, citrus, and spice flavors that linger on the palate. Bottle 316/600.

Bardstown Barrel Selections, the parent company of Redemption, was founded by bourbon industry veterans Michael Kanbar and Dave Schmier.
“Six years ago we entered the spirits business after almost three decades as a wine company, and we have been very selective about what brands we brought into our portfolio.
The addition of Redemption provides a high-quality entry into the most dynamic segment of the spirits business: American Whiskey,” Peter Deutsch, CEO of Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits, said in a press release.
“The premium and ultra-premium segments within the whiskey category remind me a lot of premium wine, with consumers being open to experiment, focused more on quality than slick marketing and interested in learning more about the product itself.”
