High West Campfire Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1106900 91 points Whisky Advocate

 This hybrid of bourbon, rye, and blended malt scotch is the dusty trail made liquid flesh. Smoke and cooked meat up front, balanced by sizzling rye spice, red fruit, and dark chocolate. Seaweed, salt spray, and peat are happy to share the spotlight. Barbecue ribs dry-rubbed with paprika, chili powder, and clove, with a smoldering finish. Hot, powerful, and beguiling. A great improvement over earlier releases. (AP, Fall 2017)

 An unexpectedly wonderful pairing with a sweet chocolate or a sticky caramel dessert, Campfire blends straight rye whiskey, straight Bourbon and blended Scotch. Altogether, it’s big and smoky, with lots of iodine, but doesn’t completely overwhelm, settling into a pleasing mix of toffee and peat. Gift a bottle to a Scotch lover to introduce the joys of American whiskeys. (KN)  (7/2013)

K&L Notes

You read correctly - High West is mixing bourbon, rye and smoky single malt to make the Campfire: a mix of three different whiskies that tastes wonderfully balanced. It's rich, spicy and just a little smoky, but it's totally drinkable. I know some of you out there might be on the fence, thinking you don't need another oddball in the bar, but this would go down fast at poker night or at any other get-together. I'm buying a big batch of it because I think it's going to be a hit. All the rich wood and spice of bourbon and rye, with that smokiness of an Islay malt. It's definitely in the style of American whiskey, rather than single malt, so it has more of a barbecue smoke quality on top of the sweet wooded flavor and that high-toned cinnamon note present in whiskies like Laphroaig and LDI rye. Delish! (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits buyer)

I'm not usually one for oddness for oddness' sake. It strikes me as a waste of time. So if you're going to do something different or new it had better taste goddamned delicious. Luckily our dear friend Mr. Perkins up there in Park City has got his big boy pants on. So this odd blend of American Whiskey and Scotch is actually extremely satisfying. It's smoldering and complex. Vibrant and well integrated. The nose is sweet caramel, dry spice and smoldering smoky peat. On the palate it's definitely on the bourbony side, long and mellow, with the malt peaking out and building in the background. A great drink for any whiskey/whisky lover.

A unique whiskey whose name tells the whole story. You have a little bourbon, some rye, and a very smoky Scotch. It is a lot of fun to serve the Campfire to someone who is new to whiskey an watch the warm smiles that follow.
