Taste: A proper Christmas plum pudding with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits, and crème anglaise.
Finish: Long and fruity
How to Enjoy: We recommend this neat." —producer
"Our American Prairie is a carefully crafted blend of straight bourbons at least 2 years old, making a great sipper and thoughtful person’s whiskey. High West pledges to donate 10% of our after tax profits from the sale of this bottle to the American Prairie Reserve. Be thoughtful and help us protect and preserve America’s natural resources." —producer
"The main flavor (or melody) is sweet honey from a ripe bourbon. The enhancing flavor (or harmony) is floral fruity spice from a mature rye whiskey. The accent (Satchmo's gravelly voice!) is the smoke from a peated scotch whisky. The proportions? Top secret. So...as the sun sinks low and the cold settles in, grab a bottle of Campfire Whiskey and gather round a blazing fire to warm up, wind down your day, share stories, and deepen friendships. One taste of this sweet, spicy and, yes...smoky whiskey, you'll know how it got its name. We like to enjoy Campfire Whiskey with s'mores…or good-looking strangers." —producer
"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." —producer
"Rendezvous Rye celebrates the first recorded whiskeyfest out West...in Utah. The 'rendezvous' was the annual summer gathering of mountain men to exchange pelts for supplies. Alcohol was not one of the 'supplies' at the first rendezvous. This oversight was corrected with a generous supply of whiskey at the second rendezvous in Utah's Cache Valley.
"Rendezvous Rye is a blend of two exotic straight rye whiskies; one old, and one young. It marries the rich aromatic qualities of a 16-year-old rye with the bold spicy properties of 6-year-old rye to create a full flavored, very complex whiskey. The 6-year-old boasts an uncommonly high 95% rye mash bill. Almost every other straight rye whiskey you can buy today is barely legal, with 51-53% rye in the mash bill. Not Rendezvous Rye. It honors the way rye whiskey used to be made, with a high rye content and full, uncompromised flavor. With Rendezvous Rye, you get a taste of authentic rye whiskey. We hope you enjoy it." —producer
