High West Double Rye
Marriage of two straight rye whiskies that combines the feisty properties of a high rye 2-year-old and the saddle smooth richness of a 16-year-old. The 2-year-old has a 95% rye 5% barley malt mashbill. The older rye has a “barely legal” rye mashbill of 53% rye and 37% corn. The extra age and corn provides some extra sweetness to calm the “bite” of the younger rye for a relationship that works. Light amber color. Exotic aromas of wintermint, sweet pickle, pistachio praline, anise, and pink peppercorns with a rich, chewy fruity-yet-dry full body and a gentle finish suggesting mint green tea and five spice. Fascinating.
