High West Double Rye
High West // (bottled in) Utah, USA

The second was distilled at High West (mash bill: 80% rye and 20% malted rye). Double Rye is bottled non-chill-filtered and at 92 proof. Note: This formerly included a 16 year-old straight rye from Barton Distillery in Kentucky (mash bill: 53% rye and 37% corn) instead of the High West distillate.

"The aroma is full of anise, mint, and clove. These notes continue along with a bit of leather and juniper. Finish on the whiskey is complex and lengthy with cinnamon and oak flavors as the lingering flavors. "
