New on the shelf-

New this week:Corner Creek Reserve Bourbon- Made in Bardstown, Kentucky. Aged 8 years. 88 Proof.
Don't let the wine bottle deceive you, it's all Bourbon in this brown bottle. On the palate it is light with lots of citrus, mild corn, wheat and rye tones, finishing crisp and clean. A great beginner's Bourbon at a good price too!

Redemption Rye Whiskey- Distilled in Indiana, Bottled in KY. Aged 2 years. 92 Proof. Rye is making a come back! Once a popular spirit in the US, Rye Whiskey was a key ingredient famed classic cocktails such as The Manhattan, The Whiskey Sour, Sazerac, and The Old Fashioned. By the time Prohibition was repealed, Rye's popularity had suffered greatly.

Redemption Rye Whiskey vies to change that. With a bold 95% Rye in the mashbill (as opposed to the standard at the very least 51%), this Rye has a "feisty" flavor profile with prominent notes of cinnamon, clove, and dark chocolate, blended with hints of crisp evergreen with a spicy, vibrant finish.
