This limited release from High West Distillery is a delicious marriage of two straight rye whiskies finished in a mix of vermouth and syrah wine barrels. The result is a unique "not too sweet" blended rye which explodes with big, bold flavors of cinnamon, blackberries and vanilla. Bottled at 92 proof, this whiskey is just as amazing sipping neat as it is in a truly special Manhattan. A new arrival, this whiskey is quickly becoming a favorite and received 93 points from Tasting Panel Magazine.

Product Details

This delicious experiment from the team at High West is a blend of a 2-year old 95% rye whiskey and a much older 53% rye whiskey from the world-famous Barton Distillery. The whiskies are finished in used vermouth and syrah barrels to give the blend a delicious subtle sweetness. The ratio of each is a closely-held secret but the result is a unique blended whiskey that is sure to please. The nose is fresh cinnamon and crushed blackberries while the taste follows nicely with vanilla and caramel. The 92 proof provides a tasting long finish of dried orange peel and herbs. Although ideal for making very special cocktails, this whiskey is just as tasty sipped neat or on the rocks.

    Great bottle, great price

    I purchased 2 of these from craft spirits exchange, and I absolutely love it. If you like finished rye's, this is definitely a tasty one, however if you don't like port finish, I would stay clear. Personally this is a very close finish to the high west mid winters night dram for me, and is cheaper + more available than that release. Definitely recommended by me.
