High West Barrel Finished Old Fashioned Cocktail
Ready to Drink — Utah, USA
Tasted October 21, 2021
This is hands-down the best premade cocktail I've ever had! And while that may not sound like much, since the premade cocktail bar is set pretty low, it's also one of the best Old Fashioneds I've ever had - period! It's a solid proof at 86, which means the whiskey used must've been around 108-110 proof since it's made with a 4:1 ratio of rye-to-simple syrup. I typically use High West Double Rye for my old fashioneds, and this cocktail uses the same thing but it tastes a lot better. I'm guessing that's a combination of 1) the barrel finishing allowing the flavors to blend together better, and 2) the 83 proof of this cocktail is about 10pts higher than when I make it myself using 92 proof Double Rye + simple syrup (which results in about a 73-74 proof cocktail). At a price of $45 for 12 cocktails = $3.75 per drink, and the only work you need to do is garnish with an orange peel and cherry! If you're an Old Fashioned fan you need to give this a try!
45.0 USD per Bottle
