Review #113 | /r/Bourbon Review #63 – High West Campfire
The Schtick: This is a blend of bourbon, rye and peated malt from High West in Park City, Utah.
Bottler: High West
ABV: 46% ABV
Nose: It’s sweet like bourbon with a mild smokey undertone. Vanilla, then smoke. Molasses, then smoke. On and on.
Taste: This is a funky dram, it’s sweet and hits all the bourbon notes and then smoke rolls in. I like it a lot, because it’s not too overwhelming in one way or another. Lots of vanilla, molasses, cinnamon, smoke and a hint of icing.
Finish: It’s not wildly long, but it’s not short or harsh. High West knows what they are doing.
Overall: It’s funky. I like it. I want more of it. I might give this bottle a second look someday. Very unique. Points for creativity.
