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!
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

This is a blend of ryes - barton and mgp bottled by High West.
I get a really strange metallic smell along with some rye and dill notes. Hmmmm.
Really, quite spicy with some rubber and acetone notes at the end. This shit is funky.
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.
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.
