High West Valley Tan Utah Whiskey (Batch #19G03), 43.5%

Price: $50 Issue: Winter 2019 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Delicately expressive on the nose, with lemon icebox cookies, pistachio ice cream, almonds, lemon-lime soda, toasted oak, and a hint of dried chili. There's zingy citrus zipping through the oak-led palate, which also has sweet vanilla, hints of nuts, spice, and some savory dried chili. It finishes short, with sweet oak. A blend of whiskeys made with wheat and malted barley, and oats and malted barley. (Utah only)
