This is the flagship rye offering from High West. It is a blend of Barton and MGP rye that is aged and bottled at High West in Park City, Utah.
Brown sugar, massive molasses and vanilla. Almost some buttercream to accompany the rye spice.
Theres sweet rye spice followed by some brown sugar and woody leather. Molasses and maple roll in next. Very well blended and nicely complex. The mouthfeel is thicker than I expected on this one and I like it a lot.
Medium long, sweet and once again complex. At 92 proof it leaves you wondering if theres really alcohol content at all. Id love to try a ramped up, CS offering from High West if they ever make one but I dont think the rye is suffering at the proof its at.
Great, solid offering from High West. A good rye at a good age.
