A high-rye Bourbon from The World’s Highest Distillery.
 
Based high in Rocky Mountains of Colorado at an altitude of 9600 feet, Breckenridge Distillery calls themselves “The World’s Highest Distillery.” And yes, we are pretty sure that the irony is intended. If you took a hard look at their impressive range of product offerings and more than 2 dozen awards — including winning “Distillery of the Year”… twice — you might think that they have been around a long time. But Bryan Nolt founded the place in 2007. That makes their achievements even more impressive. 
 
One of their signature products — and arguably one of their best sellers — is Breckenridge Bourbon. The first thing that a Bourbon fan might notice is that this is a blend… but don’t let that throw you. They mash and distill a lot of Bourbon in house and blend it with other high-rye, straight Bourbons from Tennessee, Indiana, and Kentucky.

They are pursuing flavour, and they get it for sure in this deeply hued dram with a luscious mouth-feel. What's the secret of the superior texture? According to Bryan, it's all about the pure, mineralized, snow-melt water that they have in abundance and use for distillation and proofing.

Edward
A little different from the others but its one on my top shelf.
Paul
This bourbon warmed me all the way down to the tip of my toes! It was strong but not overwhelming, with a nice spicy flavor.
Christopher
One of my favorite whiskeys for the price point. As Daniel said, takes a but to get all the flavors.

I drank this stuff up so quick I hardly remember it. If that is anything to base an opinion on....it was great, judgement passed! Thumbs up!
Eric
I completely agree with Daniel. After a few drams over the last week, I've noticed the flavors have become much clearer. I can definitely taste the clarity that the water from Rocky Mountain snowmelt contributes to the blend. This bourbon needs a lot of oxygen to be fully appreciated. It's no High West, but it's still delicious.

Decent. A bit flat.
Daniel
Good, but hard to pin down flavors and aroma. I would recommend it, but don't expect to really get it on your first drink.
David
Perfect with a Kuba Kuba
Andrew
My honest favorite
