  • Intro:

    Before it was laid to rest, High West did lots of awesome barrel finishes for their Rendezvous Rye line. This one spent time in an ex-boulevarder barrel and then was bottled.

  • Nose:

    Sweet and fruity. Funky spice here - cinnamon, clove, dill, potpourri. Kinda like Grandmas bathroom, but in a good way. Its sweet, fruity, floral. Smells very much like a cocktail, also.

  • Taste:

    Really nice mouthfeel. This is what I was hoping YKY would be like. Very tame head, stewed fruits, cherries, plums, apricot, cloves, cocoa. Really interesting blend.

  • Finish:

    Medium in length but gentle. Spicy, dilly, sweet, fruity. Lots of clove, but in a pleasant, earthy way.

  • Overall:

    I like this a whole lot, but its no Quady in my mind. I wish I had had a chance to snag one, though. Really delicious and really unique. Like I said before, its what I hoped YKY would be like.

  • Score:

    7
