High West A Midwinter Nights Dram

  by    0   0

This is a blend of 6-year and 16-year old straight rye finished in Port wine barrels and French oak barrels and bottled at 49.3% ABV.  Dark fruit is prominent, in particular cherries and raspberries. It coats the mouth and tongue nicely giving a rich, velvety mouthfeel. There’s less spice than with the standard Rendezvous Rye, but about the same level of complexity. Like the smell, the taste is blend of dark red wine and whiskey although the whiskey dominates on the palate. The finish is highlighted by a lingering sweetness that is a perfect ending.A great gift for the whiskey lover on your list. 90 Points Whiskey Advocate  $83.99 750ml
