High West Bourbon is a complex blend of straight bourbon whiskeys, producing an aromatic blended whiskey that is rich and earthy on the palate. This American bourbon showcases well-balanced flavors of candy corn, honey nougat, lemon zest, and sweet cornbread biscuits, with notes of caramel apple, pecan pie, and vanilla lingering on the finish. A blend of straight bourbons aged for a minimum of two years in charred American white oak barrels and never chill-filtered or carbon-treated, this High West whiskey is a great sipper and a thoughtful person's whiskey. This barrel aged bourbon's balanced body makes it ideal for mixing into Boulevardier or Manhattan cocktails, as well as countless other whiskey cocktails. And because High West donates a portion of its after-tax profits to the American Prairie Reserve, each bottle of whiskey sold helps preserve the West. Choose High West and enjoy delicious craft whiskey made with the pioneering spirit.

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.
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.
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.
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.
