This is one for American whisky aficionados. Unlike almost all other American whiskies, High West Whisky -- Rocky Mountain Rye 21 Year Old is aged in used barrels. The vast majority of other types are aged in new oak so are heavily influenced by the wood, especially those that spend any length of time maturing (the most popular brands spend as little as four years aging).

For this High West 21 Year Old Rye, the 21 years in the barrel was a more delicate affair. The result is soft and smooth with an unmistakable rye character.

The High West Distillery where it is made is in Park City, Utah. The distillery is new on the market but it is making an impact with this and its other brands of high quality, premium whiskies.

The whisky they used to make this Rocky Mountain Rye was distilled using a mashbill that was 53% rye, 37% corn and 10% barley malt. High West did not distil it themselves (they have not been around long enough) but it has been hand-selected and carefully bottled. High West’s own whiskies are currently maturing so expect to hear more from this distillery.
