    Temptation Bourbon

    Something called Temptation bourbon showed up on the latest Michigan supplemental price list today.

    Anybody know what the hell this stuff is? It apparently made an appearance at Whiskey Fest recently. 82 proof, $22 for 750 ml.

    Not Temperance Bourbon?

    That's what I was expecting but it says Temptation. Not that the LCC would have a typo...

    Re: Temptation Bourbon

    Bardstown Barrel Selections, Inc (the same company that bottles Redemption) owns the trademark to Temptation Bourbon.

    Thanks, Tom. I suspected as much. Redemption Hight Rye Bourbon and Riverboat rye also made the list.

    Re: Temptation Bourbon

    As I understand it, Redemption is LDI high-rye recipe at 92 proof, while the Temptation is LDI high-corn recipe at 82 proof. Both are just over 2 years of age.

    The nice thing about both bottlings is that the mashbill percentages are actually listed on the bottle! Say what you will about the price/age, but I think the disclosure is fantastic.

    Re: Temptation Bourbon

    Temptation, Redemption, and Riverboat are all Dynamic Beverages products made at LDI. Bardstown Barrel Selections (BBS) is the bottler, which is a separate company, but Dave Schmier, president of Dynamic, is a partner in BBS. Michael Kanbar, who did the 80 Strong bourbon a few years ago, is the other partner.

    The bottle of Redemption Rye that I have says on the label that it's bottled by Strong Spirits. Is that a dba for Dynamic?
