  • Publication: SpiritSurveyor
  • Excerpt: Around the $35 price point, I think it does well, especially if you are looking for the flavor punch that some barely legal ryes fail to deliver. It also makes a killer old-fashioned.

  • Excerpt: At the $35 price point, I think it is a great value and would definitely pick up a bottle. On top of that, this bottle is readily available. I was a fan of this pour and am excited to see what High West releases in the future!

  • Publication: The Whiskey Jug
  • Excerpt: Warm, inviting and a little oily. While it is mostly a smooth sip, it does have a bit of a kick to it letting you now that he may be a gentleman, he ain’t no dandy.

  • Publication: Distiller
  • Excerpt: The aroma is full of anise, mint, and clove. These notes continue along with a bit of leather and juniper. Finish on the whiskey is complex and lengthy with cinnamon and oak flavors as the lingering flavors

  • Intro:

    This is a blend of ryes - barton and mgp bottled by High West.

  • Nose:

    I get a really strange metallic smell along with some rye and dill notes. Hmmmm.

  • Taste:

    Really, quite spicy with some rubber and acetone notes at the end. This shit is funky.

  • Finish:

    Short and harsh compared to the other HW offerings. It leaves a really rough acetone feel in my throat, which I cant say I totally love.

  • Overall:

    Okay, I might have sounded displeased but its not terrible. Theres some overarching notes that I dont totally love but for the $31 I paid, I cant really complain. It tastes young, potentially grainy and just not up to par with some other ryes I have on the shelf.
