High West Double Rye! Barrel Select for Wooden Cork
Distinctive, limited-release, barrel-finished versions of High West whiskey, each of these High West Double Rye! Barrel Select Whiskey bottles is hand-numbered. Specially selected batches of Double Rye! 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 already known for delicious spice flavors of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg balanced with the richness of woody vanilla and subtly sweet caramel flavor. Regardless of the pleasantly surprising tasting notes a particular bottle of Double Rye! Barrel Select provides – perhaps added sweetness, a hint of wine, or an aged bourbon whiskey flavor – 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.
