Spicy Bourbon sensation from the heart of the Rockies.

Deep in the woods of the Rocky Mountains, there's a house of magic, where one of the best Bourbons in the world is made. Way up high, at 9,600 feet above sea level, Master Distiller Jordan Via makes wild creations that sweep us off our feet every single time. The secret? Take 56% corn, 38% rye and 6% malted barley, put it in an open-top Scottish fermenter and distill the concoction twice through a 550-gallon Kentucky-made copper pot still. They make it sound so easy...

Well, the fresh Bourbon is then aged at 120 proof in American white oak casks (char level #3) for at least three years. Then, you bring it to proof using the purest Rocky Mountain snowmelt from 14,000 feet. What you get is pure poetry of spicy aromas that won Breckenridge two gold medals at the Denver International Spirits Competition in 2012. This handcrafted small-batch amber liquid is bound to make you smile like a fool.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavour. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.

Ratings & Reviews
Greg
Greg,
This one is very unique. It kinda tastes like pumpkin pie, which I love, but am still a little on the fence about how I feel about it as a whiskey. It's good though. They call it white pepper as the dominant flavor but I taste cinnamon and pumpkin. Great spice/heat under that to give it a complex flavor. I'm calling it a 7.

Dan,
Really like this! Tastes like Winter. Cinnamon, light cloves, hint of coconut on the finish. Really really smooth.

Paul,
Ok no one will ever believe this but I was going to make a fireball whiskey reference before I read the prior review that did so. It really does have that vibe. Too much nutmeg/cinnamon and medicinal spiced sweetness
 
Eric
Eric,
I didn't enjoy this one at all. The nose was already offputting, and it tasted pretty much how it smelled. Just as I wouldn't drink Fireball Whiskey, I didn't like this at all. Didn't taste like whiskey to me. No winter spices in my whiskey, thanks.

Magnificent aroma and a strong pepper flavor with undertones of fruit and honey. I’ll definitely add this to my home bar.
