    Re: Redemption Barrel Proof 6yr Rye

    Well not sure which batch mine is but is 122 proof and I did a sbs last night with it and HW Rendezvous.

    The Redemption just blew the HW away and I love me some HW.

    Maybe it's just me but it seems that LDI is getting a whole lot better making ryes.

    Yea Indiana!

    I think HW Rendezvous is a blend of Indiana rye and some other rye. I haven't tried it yet but have a bottle on the way.

    Agree about Indiana. Most of my favorite ryes are from the Indiana distillery. Sazerac and Rittenhouse being the only two non-Indiana ryes I really enjoy. (I would probably add Michter's to that list if it weren't so watered down!)

    I love my batch 3 . . . in fact, once the glass is empty, going to top it off with some of that!

    I keep passing this up at a local store at $75. What's a good price for this?

    $55-$60 around here. I'd probably pay a bit more than that for it if I was in a fix, but $75 is probably pushing that envelope.

    Agreed. I would expect this one to start going up so I guess @ $60 I should pick up a couple bottles for the bunker.

    Re: Redemption Barrel Proof 6yr Rye

    Picked one of these up on a whim this weekend, liked it quite a bit. Batch 4, 121.8 proof, very rye forward (no surprise given the mashbill), some sweetness, a hint of orange. Liked it better than my Willett 4 year, and I like that. Very solid pour, whether its worth the $56-58 (forget the exact number) is up to you. Not 100% sure I'd buy another, but don't regret this one.
