High West Rendezvous Whiskey Rye
High West Rendezvous Whiskey is Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870 and the world’s only ski-in gastro-distillery. If you find yourself in Old Town Park City, please stop (or ski) by to visit us. We’d love to share our passions with you: the American West, our contemporary western victuals, American roots music, and of course, pairing all the above with our greatest passion – superb whiskey. Better yet, you ought to come out to our distillery in the mountains of Wanship, Utah. It’s a celebration of cowboys and the American West.
Boy howdy, sure does smell like darn good rye whiskey around these parts! Well golly, no wonder it does when there’s High West Rendezvous Rye from Utah up in here. With a very high rye content in its mash bill, High West Rendezvous Whiskey is an authentic, spicy blend of that makes one heck of a Manhattan as well as being brilliant by itself.
Malted grains and a bit of spice open the nose, with alluring touches of red berries, brown sugar, and lemon hard candies. An interplay of brown spice, pepper, citrus, and honey unfolds on the palate, with cinnamon creeping in on the finish.” 93 Points, 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.
Rustic notes of oak and fruit, a little menthol. Slightly grassy, followed by sweeter notes of toffee and classic vanilla.
Oak spices, pepper and even some chillies. Needles to say, it’s rather spicy. Deep inside you’ll find a little treasure cove of sweetness, but then it’s back to the savoury notes from the nose.
The heat continues from the palate (how could it not?) with fresh oak and tea leaves.
A surprising rye whiskey, unique and very enjoyable.
