Product of: United States
Classified by the TTB as a 'light whiskey', i.e. it is distilled at more than 80% alc./vol. and less than 95% alc./vol.. High West says it "cut the 'tails' of this whiskey at 176 proof [88%], when the fusel oils begin to show up. Fusel oils can taste like Band-Aids and we figured you'd appreciate us taking that out! We also "proof" the whiskey down with our high mineral content water - mainly because it tastes pretty good."
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 30/08/2011
Restrained, toasted cereal grain nose with grassy granola aromas.
Aromatic grassy notes are more obvious on the apple and pear fruit-influenced palate with subtle anise and Indian spice flavours.
Spice and aniseed linger longer than the fruit on the medium finish.
