High West Double Rye Whiskey
Thanks to its balance of cinnamon, anise, and honey, High West Double Rye stands on its own in cocktails, but is great served neat, with a little water, or on the rocks. Its spirited flavor fortifies classic cocktails like the Manhattan and Old Fashioned. Double Rye! is a blend of two different rye whiskeys. It is also crafted to be twice as spicy (think cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves) as your average rye whiskey. The blend of straight Rye whiskeys range in age from 2 to 7 years.
