Big Jones is pleased to announce Redemption Rye as its Whiskey of the Month for January.
Redemption Rye is distilled in Indiana and bottled in Bardstown Kentucky. The mash bill contains a high premium rye count of 95%. It is aged for two plus years in charred American oak barrels and bottled at 92 proof. With the high rye count and bottled at a young age the racy flavors of the rye really come through in this whiskey. The nose gives you one last reminder of Christmas with notes of clove, ginger, evergreen and cinnamon with a little hint of menthol. These flavors transfer over to the palate with a subtle flavor of chocolate and licorice. The mild sweetness combined with the spice characters that this whiskey shows makes it perfect for a Manhattan, or just poured over ice and sipped on its own.
We look forward to seeing you at the restaurant to try the first aged rye whiskey that we have featured, and as always keep sipping whiskey. Cheers.
