High West Distillery announced today the release of A Midwinter Night’s Dram, which went on sale at the High West Saloon and General Store in downtown Park City on Valentine’s Day.
A Midwinter Night’s Dram is a limited-release of High West’s award winning Rendezvous Rye whiskey finished for several months in port and French oak barrels. Rendezvous Rye is a mix of a straight 6-year-old with a mashbill containing 95% rye/5% barley malt and a straight 16-year-old with a mashbill containing 80% rye/10% corn/10% barley malt
“The rye forms a beautiful vanilla, caramel and cinnamon base, the port barrels add plums and dried fruits, and the French Oak adds a spice accent,” High West proprietor David Perkins said. “It tastes like a proper Christmas plum pudding with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits and crème Anglaise. We knew this was just perfect in the middle of a long cold winter.”
It is bottled at 98.6 and priced at $79.99. It is currently available in limited quantities at the High West Saloon and General Store in downtown Park City and will go on sale nationwide in October.
