Product description

When we say “High Rye,” we mean it. Made with corn and a 36% rye content, it’s significantly higher than comparable bourbons, resulting in a unique combination of flavors: subtly sweet but punctuated by rich notes of rye spice. If you’re looking for a bold bourbon, with both complexity and balance, you’ve found it. Nose: Light vanilla, red berry fruitness and a slight hint of oak Palate: Spicy, woody, and minty notes. Fennel-like notes of light licorice and black pepper from the rye Finish: Long and smooth with a nice spice from the high rye content

    I don’t know because I received the wrong product. I received the traditional bourbon instead.

    This is very affordable for such a tasty pre-prohibition rye recipe. It is certainly worth more than it’s sold for.

    Review title Smooth and nuanced, new bottle, don’t be fooled [ ] Review for Redemption High-Rye Bourbon Great for the price, smooth with a good personality, good on the rocks or mixed in an Old Fashioned or Manhattan. Don’t be fooled by the new bottling (uncomfortably similar to their Bulleit competitor), it’s the same bourbon as the slim tall bottle…


Bourbon is a corn-based, aged spirit that, while legally can be produced anywhere in the U.S., is Kentucky’s signature liquor; in fact, Kentucky distilleries make 95% of the world’s bourbon and the Bluegrass State hosts over a million visitors annually for bourbon tasting tourism.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
Much like how a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, bourbon is a whiskey — but because of the stricter standards set for bourbon distillers, most whiskies are not considered bourbons.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Bourbon’s ingredient list is short and sweet (literally): corn, other grains, water and yeast. Barley, wheat and rye grains are often featured in the mash composition alongside the liquor’s signature corn base, but even so, the FDA considers straight bourbon as a gluten-free product that is safe for those with Celiac Disease or for individuals who suffer from other forms of gluten intolerance.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
