High West Double Rye Whisky
Brand High West
Thanks to its balance of cinnamon, anise, and honey, HIGH WEST DOUBLE RYE! is great served neat, with a little water, or on the rocks. And its spirited flavor fortifies classic cocktails like the Manhattan and Old Fashioned. We recommend it for most occasions - sipping it in solitude by a campfire, savoring with favorite old friends, or sharing it with a good-looking stranger.
Marriage of two straight rye whiskies:
The 2-year-old (Source - LDI now MGP) mashbill:
•95% rye, 5% barley malt mashbill
The older rye (Source - Barton Distillery) has a "barely legal" rye mashbill of:
•53% rye, 37% corn
Nose: mint, clove, cinnamon, licorice root, pine nuts, and dark chocolate, with a surprising dose of gin botanicals throughout
Taste: Immediate rye punch of prickly spices, then Gin, menthol, mint, eucalyptus, wildflower honey, and confectioners sugar flavors abound.
