A mellow clean cut rye.
High West Whiskey
Rocky Mountain Rye, 16 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Quite light layers of orange peel, vanilla and a dustiness. A little fresh tobacco leaf and spice.
Palate: Packs a great spice and pep at the front then mellows into fruit.
Finish: Long and spiced, that fruit coming through too.
Comment: A mellow clean cut rye.
Nose: Tobacco, musk, tangerine and mandarin, vanilla and dusty perfumed notes.
Palate: Intensely spicy but with some citrus notes.Altogether fresher, cleaner and thinner than some American style whiskeys.
Finish: Quite long and spicy, with lemon and orange in the mix.
Comment: Very different again, but still very enjoyable.
