Distillery Notes:

To make this one-of-a-kind spirit, Master Blender, Dave Carpenter, took our trademark Redemption Rye (95% rye, 5% malted barley mashbill) and finished it in Jamaican and Barbadian rum barrels. The result is an intriguing romance between the signature spice of Redemption Rye and the complex sweetness imparted on the rum barrels. The aging process required meticulous monitoring to achieve the perfect balance of these flavors.

Proof: 94

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Dried stone fruit (apricot, persimmon), clover honey, baking spice (clove, caraway)

Palate: The Barbadian casks give a warming richness up front, while the Jamaican casks impart an earthy, fruity finish on the back end. The different lengths of finish help balance the sweetness of the younger barrels with the soft tannin and baking spice of the longer finish.

Finish: Light and breathy with golden raisins dusted in a whisper of ceylon cinnamon

Awards/Reviews:

Platinum - Ascot Awards 2022, 2021

“The rum cask influence comes through powerfully and beautifully on both the nose and the palate, lending a roundness and slight sweetness to the whiskey. This is a gem.”

93 Points - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2022

"A deftly executed spirit with classic rye aromas of burnt orange peel, vanilla laced toffee, and cinnamon candy mingling with tropical tones of ripe melon, kiwi skin, and coconut cream. The palate is admirably complex dancing between earthy grain notes and ripe, Caribbean fruit."

"Delicately spiced with fruity aromas flowing into a nutty palate, finished with fresh lemongrass." - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2022
