High West 2022 Rendezvous Rye Whiskey
High West's Rendezvous Rye is now a seasonal and limited release that has evolved to include more of their own High West pot still rye each year. Beloved for its spicy and herbal but rich and sippable character, this is one that made rye drinkers of many of us when it first debuted. Made from a high rye mashbill (somewhere in between the "Kentucky Style" barely legal 51% ryes and the well trod MGP 95% ryes), it gives off an expressive nose of poached pear, bitter orange, ground ginger, lavender, wet sandalwood, and tanned leather. The palate follows with persimmon, dried apricot, snickerdoodle, ginger chews, walnut sauce, and spiced caramels. Bottled at 46% abv.
