High West Rendezvous Rye hails from Utah where chilly winters are the norm.
So is it any wonder that the folks at High West know a thing or two about keeping warm? This spicy blend of two whiskeys— a 6-year-old with a 95 percent mash bill and a 16-year-old with an 80 percent mash bill — will keep you toasty with fragrant notes of cinnamon and clove complemented by vanilla and caramel, with a touch of mint that rounds out the sweeter elements. The spirit is balanced start to finish with a slight smokiness that never overwhelms. Because Rendezous is not chill-filtered, it sometimes appears cloudy in the bottle, which by no means affects the quality and can quickly be remedied with a swirl. Ideal when sipped neat, Rendezvous also makes an indulgent Manhattan.
