High West Double Rye
Austin,
You like rye? You like whiskey? This is the most rye whiskey blend I have ever tried and I love the kick! High West makes a variety of great blends of whiskey and bourbons but this is one of my favorites.

Amazing flavor profile, aged in Port Barrell
High West Double Rye
Matthew,
Batch reviewed is 19H06. Color is a basic amber. Nose has a faint oiliness, with notes of mild ethanol, faint evergreen, and subtle rye spice. First sip is pleasantly spicy, with a blend of classic rye spice, baking spice, and a very mild baseline sweetness. Mouthfeel is full, very slightly oily. Finish is a little short, with a continuation of the backing spices. Additional sips reveal subtle notes of the evergreen/juniper. Good, but doesn't really stand above other MGP-including products.

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.

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

High West Double Rye
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.

Christmas in a bottle
High West Campfire Whiskey

Just too smokey. I've enjoyed the other High West. This one, not so much.
High West Double Rye
Andrew,
Great. Very sweet.
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Brandon,
I’m going to kind of echo some of the other reviews. The quality and smoothness is akin to a bottle that would cost easily double the price. The nose is sweet, like vanilla and butter. The slight burn, like a good bourbon, mellows into the sweet oaky finish that tingles for a few minutes after. Love this sipping bourbon.
High West Campfire Whiskey
Zack,
One of my favorites, but be ready for a ton of smoke. It ain't called Campfire for nothin.
High West Yippee Ki-Yay
Andrew,
One of my favorites
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Jeff,
Very smooth and excellent taste
High West American Prairie Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Devan,
Hands down the best bottle I've had for under $40. It rivals bottles I've had for twice the price. It's sweet and caramely.
High West Double Rye
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.

High West Campfire Whiskey
Andrew,
To much Smoke
High West Rendezvous Rye
Todd,
Very nice. I would repeat.
High West Double Rye
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.
High West Campfire Whiskey
Michael,
Very unique
High West Barreled Boulevardier
Vincent,
The first, and still the best, Boulevardier I've ever had - which is now one of my all time favorite bourbon cocktails...
High West A Midwinter Night's Dram
Liz,
The port and cherries really shined through in this
High West Double Rye
Christopher,
One of the best ryes for the money, nice and easy drinker.
High West Yippee Ki-Yay
William,
I buy a bottle of this every summer to enjoy. Just a great solid bourbon.
High West Campfire Whiskey
Gary,
Starts as a bourbon, great nose. Burns a little, like a whisky. But that single malt scotch finish that sticks around. Very interesting spirit.
High West Bourye Whiskey
Liz,
This is delicious. You can nose the clove and definitely get the pecan notes when tasting. Totally worth the price.
High West Campfire Whiskey
Richard,
Lives up to its namesake!! Amazing blend that does a nice job showcasing a Bourbon with a nice transition into a Rye and finishes with the subtle smokiness (like a campfire) of a Scotch. Well done High West!!
High West Rendezvous Rye
Mike,
A little sweet, but very nice with a cube
High West Yippee Ki-Yay
Liz,
Very mild considering it’s a blend of ryes. High west has been hit or miss for me and this one was a miss.

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.

Brandon,
A smokey delight to sip
