20160720_200605High West – Campfire Whiskey
A blend of 3 whiskies –  a Bourbon aged 6 years with a mash of 75% corn, 20% rye and 5% barley (by MGP formerly LDI) a Rye aged 5 1/2 years with a mash 95% rye and 5% barley (aged at Stitzel Weller Warehouse) and a blended  malt Scotch aged 8 years.
Bottled at 92 Proof by High West Distillery in Park City, Utah
I received this bottle as a gift, but I have seen the price range from $50-$65
Pretty common to find on the shelves in MA if the store carries High West products

Nose: Spice, Smokey and Sweet Corn

Taste:  Spice and Vanilla bit Sweet like Brown Sugar (Can really taste the Rye and Bourbon) also can taste Malt/Earthy (from the Scotch)

Finish: Very Smooth, Rich and Creamy and a bit Peaty! Makes you think your next to a campfire inhaling/exhaling

Value:  Something really unique! Worth the price tag.  A great gift for a scotch lover to introduce them to American Whiskey.
