Product description

High West American Prairie Bourbon Barrel Select Whiskey is a distinctive, limited-release, barrel-finished version of High West whiskey in hand-numbered whiskey bottles. Specially selected batches of bourbon-aged whiskey are finished in second-use barrels for an additional period of time, ranging from six months to two years, before being bottled. Finishing barrels for this High West whiskey vary from rum or bourbon casks to brandy, gin, scotch, and a variety of wine casks, including Madeira. This secondary barrel-aging process adds a sophisticated layer of complexity and depth of flavor to an American whiskey that is aromatic, rich, and earthy, featuring well-balanced flavors of candy corn, honey nougat, and sweet cornbread biscuits, with a finish of vanilla and caramel apple. Regardless of the pleasantly surprising tasting notes a particular bottle of Barrel Select aged bourbon whiskey provides – perhaps added sweetness or a hint of wine – whiskey connoisseurs can anticipate something special. Bottles are filled at 50% ABV; however, each bottle's final ABV varies by aging period, barrel type, etc., often resulting in a higher-proof whiskey. This 750 mL bottle of whiskey helps preserve the west; High West supports the American Prairie Reserve and is working to raise awareness of this fantastic cause. Learn more at With a variety of unique taste profiles and barrel finish options, showcased by the distinct background color and foil-treated logo on the labels of these customized bottles, the enhanced character of High West Bourbon Barrel Select results in an extremely unique whiskey. To fully appreciate this barrel whiskey's additional complexity, enjoy this whiskey neat or with a splash of water in a rocks whiskey glass. Sip Responsibly.

    Really like this stuff. Flavorful, smooth, and a nice proof point (92). Nor too hot, not too diluted.

    It’s just okay. Particularly at this price point. High West may be master blenders, but they are not distillers. Nothing unique or special about this one. It’s blended to be decent and consistent. Which is absolutely fine... I’m just not paying around $30 for that.

    New product for me. First sampling was pleasant.


Bourbon is a corn-based, aged spirit that, while legally can be produced anywhere in the U.S., is Kentucky’s signature liquor; in fact, Kentucky distilleries make 95% of the world’s bourbon and the Bluegrass State hosts over a million visitors annually for bourbon tasting tourism.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
Much like how a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, bourbon is a whiskey — but because of the stricter standards set for bourbon distillers, most whiskies are not considered bourbons.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Bourbon’s ingredient list is short and sweet (literally): corn, other grains, water and yeast. Barley, wheat and rye grains are often featured in the mash composition alongside the liquor’s signature corn base, but even so, the FDA considers straight bourbon as a gluten-free product that is safe for those with Celiac Disease or for individuals who suffer from other forms of gluten intolerance.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
