A super high-quality blend of Bourbon and Rye that form a supremely delicious American Whiskey.
 
A fateful tour of Makers Mark Distillery in 2009 inspired David Perkins and his wife Jane to start their own operation. David — a former biochemist — basically said, “Hey, I can do that!” and moved his family to Utah and set up shop. Success has come hard and fast, and they now produce and market a range of products including their four core Whiskies, three current limited releases, two bottled cocktails, and two specialty Spirits.
 
“Bourye” is a combination of the words Bourbon and Rye. High West Bourye Whiskey is harder to define. They’ve been making this concoction since 2015 and each year the configuration is a bit different. But we can say that this year’s edition is a proprietary blend of Straight Bourbon and premium Rye Whiskies — all sourced from MGP in Indiana — aged a minimum of ten years. The exact ratio is considered a state secret, but the result is an extremely tasty Spirit bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.
 
Smartass corner:
The label for High West Bourye Limited Sighting has the image of a “jackalope” — rural myth of a large, antlered jackrabbit (combination of jackrabbit and antelope). Tall tales are told to this day to entertain the tourist across the great western states.

Ratings & Reviews
Thomas
Thomas,
As a big fan of High West, I expected a bit more out of this one, especially for the price. It’s spicy for sure but not complex enough beyond that. The oak is there hiding behind the spice. I couldn’t get the fruits at all. After my third tasting I added a cube and it opened up the sweetness but at that point, it was like many others I could buy at a lower price point. I’ll surely come back to it when I’m hankering for spicy. Otherwise, I’ll look elsewhere. EDIT: dropped another star. I just didn’t care for it so I tried using it in several cocktails so it wouldn’t rot on my shelf. It is weird but kind of adds some nice texture in a Brooklyn cocktail with dry vermouth instead of sweet.

Samuel,
Spice from the rye balanced with the smooth, sweet bourbon, certainly a must try.

guest,
I keep mine in fridge and drink it neat chilled. Think it is much better that way than with a cube or neat at room temp. It is quite tasty and the spiral flavor is on point.

Janet,
Nice but not as good as Tatoosh Rye
