High West Double Rye 92pr
A blend of straight rye whiskies. Not chill filtered. Double Rye! - The most excitable member of the High West family is dedicated to the cowboy in all of us. An unusual shotgun marriage of two rye whiskies from two different distilleries back easy, Double Rye! combines a feisty high rye 2-year-old and a saddle smooth 16-year old. The younger rye has a mashbill with 95% rye/5% barley malt and the older has a more typical rye mashbill with 53% rye and 37% corn. We think the extra age and increased corn adds just enough caramel sweetness and woody vanilla richness to calm the bite of the younger rye for a relationship that works. The resulting combination is bold, balanced, complex and perfect for mixing - we like a Double Rye! Manhattan. With a taste profile of cinnamon, clove, anise, eucalyptus buttons, evergreen gin like flavors and a vibrant finish, Double Rye! is absolutely superb for sipping alone or sharing with other cowboys and good-looking strangers. High West is Utah's first distillery since 1870 and the world's only ski-in gastro-distillery. If you find yourself in Old Town Park City, please stop (or ski) by to visit us. We'd love to share our passions with you: the American West, our contemporary Western victuals (pronounced and often mis-spelled vittles), American roots music, and of course, pairing all the above with our greatest passion - superb whiskey. Yippee-Yi-yay! - David Perkins (Proprietor). www.highwest.com. High West's home to historic Old Town Park City and the world's only ski-in gastro distillery. Alc 46% by vol.
