High West "A Midwinter Night's Dram." Image courtesy High West.This whiskey from High West in Utah is sourced Rye finished in Port wine casks, and the nose has notes of red grapes, soft spices, dark honey, toasted rye bagels, and dark chocolate. The taste is warming and spicy with a touch of dried flowers at first followed by an intense burst of clove spice and juicy orange oils underneath, along with honey, dark chocolate, and brown sugar notes. The finish is well-balanced, aromatic, and lingering with gently fading spices. (December, 2014)
