High West Rendezvous Rye
Brian,
This is currently my favorite rye. Man, what a great pour. Paired with a matching cigar, it makes for a great night with friends or family.

Very good rye
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Did not like
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Philip,
Spicy bourbon. Bitter and dry. There are flavors of citrus, banana, burnt wood, and tannin, but they were hard to find at first. It opens up with air and time or a few drops of water. Dropping in an orange twist made it taste like an old fashioned without needing sugar or bitters. It has some unique characteristics, but the bitterness and dryness hurt its drinkability neat. Not a bottle I will reach for often, but I’ll revisit and think it will add some nice character to an old fashioned or other cocktails.

David,
At around $30, this is a steal. I tried the double rye first, as well as campfire, and while neither of those impressed me for the price, this is worth every penny. I love the spice to it, and the lingering finish. Easily a go to from now on.

Kyle,
This bottle definitely has the feeling of the old west. It burns the whole way down!
High West Campfire Whiskey
Ryan,
I really enjoy the blend of smoke and bourbon.
High West Campfire Whiskey
Chris,
Excellent balance, with the scotch peat smoke really highlighting the peppery rye notes and the caramel, vanilla bourbon notes. Amazing whiskey
High West Double Rye
Craig,
My favorite rye that I have tried so far. Great for sipping and mixing into a cocktail.
High West Bourye Whiskey
Nate,
Warm and spicy, solid choice.
High West Double Rye
Travis,
Wow, this is not for the faint of heart. Strong notes of bread, herbs, and eucalyptus on the nose. Strong and aggressive notes oak, herbs, slight medical taste and a long hot rye finish on the pallet. great sipper for me on a night when I want to savor a glass or two.
High West American Prairie Flaviar Barrel Select 2019
John,
Floral and sweet, touch of caramel and sugar. A very good bourbon
High West Double Rye
Philip,
We tasted this and immediately thought it was unique, delicious, and a great value. The botanicals are pleasant and easy to pick up, it’s smooth and has a long minty finish. I’d pour this for any guest or be confident in giving it as a gift. It gets a 10 when factoring in value. Strong contender for our favorite bottle under $35.

A unique whiskey that delivers as advertised.
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Alex,
Really nice bourbon. Smooth from start to finish. Tastes of honey and toasted bread.
High West Rendezvous Rye
guest,
Bold spice, balanced with a fair sweetness. The Double Rye may make a better mixer because if it’s spiciness, but this is far better sipping neat or with an ice cube.
High West Campfire Whiskey
guest,
If you want to bring the campfire into your bourbon, this is it. A great bridge between bourbon and Scotch. It still brings some of the sweetness of bourbon while giving a solid punch of smoke to live up to the campfire name.
High West Double Rye
guest,
Very spicy, makes for a great Old Fashioned. It’s more than I’d like to sip neat.

A really nice and distinctive bourbon.
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Spicy, lively and bright. It's got a lot of character, and keeps giving on spice.
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Justin,
It’s ok. The burnt flavor is very strong.
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey
guest,
Definitely getting the burnt flavor. Up front though I think it would s still mellow, with a solid spiciness halfway down the throat.
High West A Midwinter Night's Dram
Jeremy,
Delicious sweet, plum, port start followed by a strong yet balanced rye spice kick throughout. Ends on a beautiful vanilla, molasses oak sweetness
High West Double Rye
Jason,
Awesome!
High West Rendezvous Rye
guest,
Sweet and thick
High West A Midwinter Night's Dram
Ivan,
I wanted to ride the hype train and love this, but I did not. All other high west releases are amazing. Here the port has a certain "bitter funk" which is not very appealing.
High West Double Rye
Mark,
An easygoing sipper, one I turn to often after a long day because it provides pleasure but makes no demands. Milder and sweeter than most ryes, but still quite tasty and an excellent value.
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Zach,
Sweet and smooth, very solid bourbon.
High West Rendezvous Rye
Brendan,
A standard rye with good bite and spice.
High West Yippee Ki-Yay
Brendan,
Hands down the best High West expression. This is a delicate finished rye, and after a few sips the finish really grows to reveal subtle hints of fruit, wine, herbs and anise.

Complex with warm spices
High West Double Rye

So much value for the price. Definitely a go to moving forward.
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Jason,
Great value for the price. My friend likened it to a (slightly) less complex Michter’s which I though was a good analogy. Drinks quite easy for a 92 proof bottle. I’d recommend drinking neat.
High West Bourye Whiskey
Chris,
Starts as bourbon and finishes like rye. Its a great whiskey!
