  • Intro:

    This is High Wests Double Rye expression that has spent 1 year and 5 months being finished in a Boulevardier barrel.

  • Nose:

    Really floral and fragrant. Peppery, leather, honey, vanilla and caramel. Very aromatic and sweet, deeply fruity. Very reminiscent of a Boulevardier cocktail.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouthfeel. Really prominent rye character, and also really prominent ethanol. Sweet, fruity and boldly spicy. Very much like a boulevardier with a side of rye. Theres some sweetness, but theres far more peppery, fruitiness.

  • Finish:

    Short, overbearing cocktail influence. Sweet, some ethanol, good bit of honey.

  • Overall:

    I didn't really like this, but I can see that some might. This was overbearing in the cocktail sense to me - tasted more like a rye forward pre-made boulevardier and less like rye with a nice cocktail finish.

  • Score:

    4
