700ml // 46.0% ABV
All though this is not an Bourbon, it is an American whiskey for the strong taste buds. A rye whiskey from David Perkins’ brilliant High West in Utah. It is made up of a 2 Year Old with a mashbill that is 95% rye and a 16 Year Old with a mashbill that is 53% rye and 37% corn. The result is a tremendously spicy, exciting and balanced rye whiskey.
Nose: Allspice and cocoa, caramel and more herbal notes. Tremendous rye intensity with caramel an ever present.
Palate: Thick and warming, honeyed cereals, vanilla and cinnamon.
Finish: Pepper and hints of hazelnut.
Overall: An extraordinary union of old and young and of high rye content and barely legal (not much above 51%) whiskeys. Spicy and sublime.
