High West Valley Tan (Batch #3), 43.5%

Price: $50 Issue: Winter 2016 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Wheat has been swapped for oats in this release, but the agenda remains the same, a very primary whiskey with grain at the forefront and just a hint of oak roundness to the surprisingly creamy palate. Fresh flour, violet candies, hints of clove spice, and persistent sweetness, the palate gives the impression of warm breakfast cereal laced with banana and lemon, a testament to the quality of the distillate.
