The Redemption Cognac Cask Finish is a limited-edition whiskey that combines the sophistication of French luxury with the boldness of pre-Prohibition-style ‘rye-forward’ whiskey. Master Blender Dave Carpenter carefully finishes the award-winning High Rye Bourbon in complex Cognac casks to create a truly decadent whiskey experience. The result is a unique and wonderful whiskey that boasts elegant and bold flavors, balanced with a warming sweetness and Redemption’s signature ‘rye-forward’ finish.
The nose of this whiskey opens with rich aromas of dark fruit, vanilla, and honey, with a hint of spice and oak in the background.
The palate is smooth and warming, with notes of caramel, toffee, and toasted oak, balanced by the bold and spicy rye flavors. The cognac finish adds a layer of complexity, with hints of dried fruit, floral notes, and a touch of sweetness.
The finish is long and satisfying, with the warming sweetness and rye-forward finish that Redemption is known for, along with lingering notes of dark chocolate and a hint of smoke.
