    I am firmly convinced Willy Wonka now works at High West. This whisky takes you on a flavor journey that few others will... or even attempt to. The nose has an immediate sweetness of rye and fig with hints of orange zest. The sweetness gives way to a nice dusty corn nite, finishing with a beautiful earthy smoke note. The palate kicks off with a welcoming sweetness akin to a rye or a dessert-y bourbon. Notes of apricot and walnut pop in the middle and just like the nose would suggest, finishes with a masterful hint of hardwood smoke, not peat smoke, campfire smoke. Go figure... Reasonably long and grippy finish leaves you with a nice hint of sweetness perfectly balanced against the smokiness. An exquisite whiskey with few downsides. Definitely pick one up on your next trip to the store.
  4. Bare Knuckle Wheat Whiskey Single Barrel Cask Strength

    Very silky on the tongue, great mouth feel. Nose gives a good amount of spice and creaminess, with a welcome sweetness. As is typical with wheat whiskies vanilla, caramel, butterscotch and a hint of Christmas spices pop on the palate. The sweetness slowly fades into a nice dry grippiness, with a somewhat long finish.
