Review #1252 – High West Double Rye Select Manhattan Finish Big Red Liquors Selection

The Schtick: I tasted this dram blind and then got the reveal at a later time, so keep that in mind as you read through these notes.

Review #1252 | Rye Review #586

Distiller: Various

Bottler: High West

Selection: Big Red

ABV: 50.9% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Sour fruit, apples, sour patch kids. Vanilla. Kinda funny fruit notes. Doesn’t feel like bourbon initially, on the nose.

Taste: Sweet apple, vanilla, honey, toffee. Light oak. Some heat here. Oak. Really fruity for a bourbon.

Finish: Some heat here, but again some apple and fun fruits. Oak, pepper, light sweetness.

Overall: This is nice, but not amazing. Good proof, good fruits but it’s a bit disjointed.

Thanks for reading!
