Park City, Utah - 92 proof - $34
Yeah that's right, Utah - Home of Mormons, the Sundance Film Festival, and a high percentage of porn addicts. High West does not distill this product. This is a blend of two very different rye whiskeys from two different distilleries "back east" as the label puts it, so Kentucky and/or Illinois/Indiana. One of the rye's is a 2 year old, 95% rye and 5% barley. The other is a 16 year old, 53% rye, 37% corn and 10% barley.
Aromas - I get the rye smell, which smells like sarsaparilla/root beer to me, though very subtle. Minty. Evergreen/pine tree, some gin like aroma. Very "forest" like.
Taste - Wow! Everything described above on the aroma comes through on the taste buds. If there is such a thing as a refreshing whiskey, this is it. I always drink my whiskey neat, and that's a good thing because on ice I could suck this down like iced tea on a hot day.
I look forward to trying the other High West products.
Would absolutely pick this up again.
