High West Double Rye Whiskey (750ml) (Previously 34)

SKU #1065479 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Billed as 'the spiciest rye whiskey anywhere,' this is a blend of two rye whiskeys, both a minimum of two years old, sourced from multiple distilleries. The 2018 bottling has a mild, honeyed scent, while the palate surprises with vanilla custard contrasted by traces of smoke, eucalyptus and cigar wrapper. As promised, the long finish explodes with a spicy burst—but don’t worry, it’s not too extreme to sip. (KN)  (11/2018)

90 points Whisky Advocate

 A blend of two straight whiskeys: a very young 2 year old high rye content whiskey and a 16 year old rye whiskey with a lower rye content. Perhaps the spiciest American whiskey I have ever tasted, yet at the same time, quite tame and mellow. Complex notes of mint, clove, cinnamon, licorice root, pine nuts, and dark chocolate, with a surprising dose of gin botanicals throughout. A soft underbelly of caramel, sweet corn, and soothing vanilla provides an interesting counterpoint. Very easy-drinking, too (hard to believe it’s 46%). Intriguing, and a must-try for rye whiskey aficionados — even if only to satisfy your curiosity. (JH, Spring 2011)

K&L Notes

David Perkins is at it again with a new batch of whiskey created from two very different ryes — a 16-year-old combined with a 2-year-old. The result is a charming combination of youthful spice with the wood-polished flavor of maturity — cinnamon, mint, chocolate, and pepper all swimming together. For the price, it's one heckuva deal. Great for sipping on its own or for fancy rye cocktails. A real winner. 92 points Beverage Tasting Institute: "Light amber color. Exotic aromas of wintermint, sweet pickle, pistachio praline, anise, and pink peppercorns with a rich, chewy fruity-yet-dry full body and a gentle finish suggesting mint green tea and five spice. Fascinating."

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
