HIGH WEST Double Rye Whiskey
High West Double Rye is a marriage of two straight rye whiskies that combines the feisty properties of a high rye two year old and the smooth richness of a 16 year old. The younger has a 95% rye 5% barley malt mashbill whilst the older rye has a "barely legal" rye mashbill of 53% rye and 37% corn. The proportion of aged stock and corn base provides some extra sweetness to calm the "bite" of the younger rye for a relationship that works spectacularly well.
Complex notes of mint clove cinnamon licorice pine nuts and dark chocolate can be found on the nose whilst the palate is rich with flavours of caramel assorted spice and vanilla. One of the best examples available this is a must-try for rye whiskey aficionados. Thanks to its balance of cinnamon anise and honey Double Rye is great served neat with a little water or on the rocks. And its spirited flavour fortifies classic cocktails like the Manhattan and Old Fashioned.
