Marriage of two straight rye whiskies that combines the feisty properties of a high rye 2 year old and the saddle smooth richness of a 16 year old. The 2 year old has a 95 per cent rye 5 per cent barley malt mashbill. The older rye has a barely legal rye mashbill of 53 per cent rye and 37 per cent corn. The extra age and corn provides some extra sweetness to calm the bite of the younger rye for a relationship that works.

Thanks to its balance of cinnamon, anise, and honey, HIGH WEST DOUBLE RYE! is great served neat, with a little water, or on the rocks. And its spirited flavor fortifies classic cocktails like the Manhattan and Old Fashioned. We recommend it for most occasions - sipping it in solitude by a campfire, savoring with favorite old friends, or sharing it with a good-looking stranger.

Rated: 90 Points - Malt Advocate Magazine. "Another Winner By High West. Perhaps the spiciest American whiskey I have ever tasted, yet at the same time, quite tame and mellow. Complex notes of mint, clove, cinnamon, licorice root, pine nuts, and dark chocolate, with a surprising dose of gin botanicals throughout. A soft underbelly of caramel, sweet corn, and soothing vanilla provides an interesting counterpoint. (Very easy-drinking, too - hard to believe it's 46%). Intriguing, and a must-try for rye whiskey aficionados, even if only to satisfy your curiosity." - John Hansell

Rated: 92 Points (Exceptional) - Beverage Testing Institute "Light amber color. Exotic aromas of wintermint, sweet pickle, pistachio praline, anise, and pink peppercorns with a rich, chewy fruity-yet-dry full body and a gentle finish suggesting mint green tea and five spice. Fascinating."

Rated: 97 Points - Matt Colglazier, American Craft Distillers "This is absolutely the finest rye (and perhaps the finest spirit) I have ever tasted."

"This is a monster of a whiskey. You like big flavor? This is the rye for you. Like it a little more mellow and smooth? Add a little water and... well, it's still a monster, but a tamer monster, at least. Not for the faint of heart, but if you love rye, you will definitely enjoy Double Rye! exclamation mark and all." - Tony Sachs, Huffington Post

Superb/Outstanding "Simply put, one of THE most unique whiskeys I've ever tried. The nose is unlike anything I've sniffed. Truly it smells of gin and evergreen. These young, fresh flavors I assume come predominantly from the 2 year old rye, while the older 16 year old adds its subtle sweetness and depth as you sip. On the palate the gin-like flavors remain but are softened and rounded by the honey notes. If you enjoy Rye or want to try a really different product than what's available on the market - Double Rye! fits that bill well." - Jason Pyle, Sourmash Manifesto
