Comment
The young and old combination makes for an unusual experience, which we liked.

Good news: You've got impeccable taste in liquor. The not-as-good news? It means it's currently out of stock. Add this bad boy to your wish list and we'll let you know if it comes our way.
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 Whiskies 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.
