" The High West Distillery in Park City, Utah prides itself on creating handcrafted, small batch spirits. They are Utah's first distillery since 1870 and the world's only ski-in gastro-saloon. High West Double Rye Whiskey is the combination of two straight rye whiskeys - a bold, peppery two year old with a 95% rye and 5% barley mashbill, and a smooth, refined sixteen year old with a mashbill of only 53% rye and 37% corn. Named a "must-try for rye whiskey aficionados" by John Hansell of Whisky Advocate, High West Double Rye opens strong and spicy, but soon gives way to complex notes of mint, clove, cinnamon, licorice root, pine nuts and dark chocolate. A surprising note of gin botanicals merges with an undercurrent of caramel, vanilla and sweet corn on the finish. "
"Double Rye — the most excitable member of the High West family — is dedicated to the cowboy in all of us. An unusual shotgun marriage of two rye whiskies from two different distilleries back east, Double Rye combines a feisty high rye 2-year-old and a saddle-smooth 16-year-old. The younger rye has a mashbill with 95% rye / 5% barley malt and the older has a more typical rye mashbill with 53% rye and 37% corn. We think the extra age and increased corn adds just enough caramel sweetness and woody vanilla richness to calm the 'bite' of the younger rye for a relationship that works. The resulting combination is bold, balanced, complex and perfect for mixing — we like a Double Rye Manhattan. With a taste profile of cinnamon, clove, anise, eucalyptus buttons, evergreen 'gin-like' flavors and a vibrant finish, Double Rye is absolutely superb for sipping alone or sharing with other cowboys and good-looking strangers." ~ Distillery notes
