High West Bourye (Batch #17A09), 46%

Price: $80 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Straight bourbon and rye whiskeys aged from 10 to 14 years, this nicely balances its dry oak, almost cedary, aromas with bourbon sweetness and a rye finish. The initial hit of orange peel, caramel, and vanilla flan yields to a spicy finish of lemon zest, peppercorns, and ginger.
