High West Son of Bourye (Batch #2), 46%

Price: $40 Issue: Spring 2012 Reviewer: John Hansell

A blend of straight bourbon and rye whiskeys. A younger-tasting expression when compared to High West's original Bourye. Pleasant enough to drink neat or with a splash of water, but that certainly wouldn't be my first choice. Sweet foundation (caramel, vanilla custard, candy corn), along with honeyed fruit, macadamia, cinnamon, nutmeg, and soft mint. Comes across as a bit confused at times, and the flavors aren't always well defined.
