Historically, this producer sourced its whiskey elsewhere, blending and bottling it at their Utah facility. The 2018 bottling is the first time whiskey made on site by High West is included, one of three straight ryes blended together, finished in barrels that previously held California vermouth and Syrah. The end result is ready to mix into Manhattans, opening with red fruit aromas and a silky palate that offers -cinnamon, oak, vanilla and crème brûlée, with a hint of juicy red fruit emerging on the mouthwatering fade. A splash of water integrates fruit, sweetness and spice.
