Redemption Whiskey is introducing a new Cask Series. Redemption Rum Cask Finish is a Straight Rye Whiskey finished in plantation Caribbean rum casks and bottled at 94 proof.
Redemption and Plantation have finally found each other. This ideal marriage between two award-winning spirits is a revolutionary romance between the spice of rye fused with the sweetness of rum.
Our Redemption Rye (95% rye, 5% malted barley) is finished in Jamaican and Barbadian rum barrels from our friends at Plantation Rum. The unique combination of Redemption’s SPICE forward Rye and Plantation’s predominantly SWEET sugar cane notes imparted on its barrels, creates a unique balance of flavor along a wide spectrum.
Redemption Rum Cask Finish Tasting Notes
Pale straw gold with light amber hues
Dried stone fruit (apricot, persimmon), clover honey, baking spice (clove, caraway)
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 rum barrels with the soft tannin and baking spice of the longer finish
