High West Distillery Double Rye!

$69.98

This light and perky rye has a warm, soft baked-apple scent. On the palate, look for citrus layered with lingering vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.

High West Double Rye! is made by blending two very distinct rye whiskies together, a lively 2-year-old and a sweeter 16-year-old that was made with a higher proportion of corn. It’s the kind of idea that makes everyone in the saloon stop and stare, including the old fella playing piano in the corner.

Nose:

Complex, with a distinct “young rye” eucalyptus/menthol note that is well-balanced and held in check by a malty sweet cinnamon-roll character, complete with that sinful white confectioner’s glaze.

Palate:

Syrupy body. Moderate to severe tongue burn – a little hot for 46% ABV. Again, the sweetness of the older rye perfectly balances the vibrancy and grassiness of the younger. Both are detectable. Toasty, nutty, sweet, and complex. Nice.

Finish:

Medium or medium-long. All of the previous notes continue into the finish. Fades with a dash of charcoal, but no bitterness.

Guaranteed Safe Checkout

Marriage of two straight rye whiskies that combines the feisty properties of a high rye 2-year-old and the saddle smooth richness of a 16-year-old. The 2-year-old has a 95% rye 5% barley malt mashbill. The older rye has a “barely legal” rye mashbill of 53% rye and 37% corn. The High West Distillery extra age and corn provides some extra sweetness to calm the “bite” of the younger rye for a relationship that works.

Thanks to its balance of cinnamon, anise, and honey, Double Rye! is great served neat, with a little water, or on the rocks. And its spirited flavor fortifies classic cocktails like the Manhattan and Old Fashioned. We recommend it for most occasions – sipping it in solitude by a campfire, savoring with favorite old friends, or sharing it with a good-looking stranger.
