Producer: High West. Distiller: LDI. ABV: 46%. Price: $30.
Been wanting to try the High West Double Rye for a long time and was overjoyed when Mrs. McDram’s father brought it home. We did a Manhattan with it then I sipped it as a nightcap and both were exceptional.
This blend of a 2-year-old high rye (95% rye) and an older, lower rye (53% – 35% corn) has a truly lovely nose with hint of cherry, rye spice, and pine. Great palate with the caramel, toffee and tobacco all playing well together. Warming, smooth finish.
My favorite of all recent tastes. – TM
