Young and Old from the Rockies.
 
High West distillery is a manufacturer and blender of spirits, located in Park City, Utah, hidden deep within the Rocky Mountains. Founded in 2007 by David Perkins, this petite distillery makes its spirits in small batches and is the first legally licensed distillery in Utah since the end of the American Prohibition. Most of their spirits are sourced and blended, although they do distil some of their spirits themselves. 
 
The Double Rye is made from the marriage of two straight Rye Whiskeys with very different compositions. One is a 2-year old fresh Whiskey with a high rye content, and the second is a 16-year old Whiskey with a lower rye content and higher corn percentage. The extra age and corn provides some extra sweetness to calm the "bite" of the younger rye for a relationship — an interesting combination that seems to work.

Michael
Michael,
Did not personally enjoy the taste, I gave the bottle to a friend who did enjoy it. I experienced to much spice/clover for my liking.
 
Cameron
Cameron,
Love the flavor and smooth finish!
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Great. Very sweet.
 
Kent
Kent,
Just didn’t work for me. The flavors just Seem all wrong. With so many other great Ryes out there I probably won’t buy again.
 
Ben
Ben,
This is an incredible whiskey. The idea that marrying the youthful vigor and spice punch of a two year rye with the finesse and complexity of a 16 year old rye to somehow acquire the the best of both worlds seems like a fools errand. Except they nailed it. Upfront the palate is swarmed with spice and power and fruit, but then, there is an incredible turn toward vanilla and delicate barrel spice with an astonishingly long, complex, and satisfying finish. Also, this is $30. This drinks at three times that price.

Love the hint of mint and floral flavor. Very different from the typical spicy whiskey I normally drink. Refreshing and delicious

Perfectly balanced sipper with a smooth finish despite a moderately spicy start

Mediocre rye. Nothing offensive. Nothing impressive.

High west does a great job. I have not had an offering of theirs I disliked. you really should have a few bottles of theirs especially considering their excellent prices

Not bad. Will drink again.
 
Dante
Dante,
A distinct profile that starts off with a slightly sweet and woody hit and ends with a more traditional rye flavor.

Wonderful rye - complex, rich, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon.

A fine rye on a budget!
 
Justin
Justin,
Good rye for the price. I haven't tried the more expensive expressions from High West because you can get this Rye and their Prairie Bourbon for around $30. Hard to justify spending $70 on the others when these are so good.
Lane
Lane,
So true. The others are better but not for double the price
Ian
Ian,
the best rye i’ve ever had - nice, smooth, and spicy but not too dry as a lot of ryes i’ve run across can be
 
Frank
Frank,
Great stuff. Spicy but with a thick, rich flavor like it’s more expensive brothers from HW.
 
Christina
Christina,
An outstanding bourbon. Really unique flavor that is unlike anything else I've had. Sweet, smooth, plenty of rye, but it's just better than any other rye I've had.

Not my favorite, will not buy again when there are so many good ones out there.

Pretty good, if you enjoy rye whiskey. It is basically a whiskey for people who enjoy rye whiskey. It has a nice burn and a deep rye taste.

I received a bottle for my 50th birthday. This is a very pleasant drink. I have found the spice is very strong and long lasting.
 
Allen
Allen,
An excellent, tasty whiskey with character and a lot going on for a rye. Sits strong in the mouth, has a nice chewy, spicy flavor and the right kind of rye burn. Really fun to drink.

Omar
Omar,
I like this one a lot, again, new to the tasting, just kind of know what I do and do not like. It has a sweet finish and is quite strong but I do like it. I work in retail and this is a new product in one of liquor stores, so I gave it a go and was not disappointed.
