Redwood Empire Bottled in Bond Rye Rocket Top Details
Distillery: Redwood Empire
Type & Region: Rye, USA
Composition: 87% rye, 5% wheat, 5% malted barley, 3% corn
Aged: 5 years
Color: 1.3/2.0 on the color scale (russet, muscat)
From the company website:Straight rye, aged five years in 53-gallon American White Oak barrels, primarily toasted and charred to level 3. This release features a 4-grain mash bill that adds 3% of Corn, which brings a little more sweetness than our inaugural release. Still maintaining a high percentage of rye, the result are aromas of bergamot, candied orange, sage, and dates with a savory palate of fig jam, caramel corn, and cracked pink peppercorn. Rocket Top is named for the 365-foot coastal redwood tree, reminiscent of a bottle rocket, in Humboldt Redwoods State Park.

Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
