Proof66 Notes

High West Distillery is proud of both its small status and its western roots. It is currently restoring a 100 year-old livery stable as its future home and the horseshoes in the logo are meant to honor that tradition. In Utah, they are at an altitude of 7,000 feet in the Rockies. They hope that by enjoying their product the consumer is celebrating their "gumption" at bringing spirits back to Utah.

Rocky Mountain 21yr Rye is the oldest whiskey currently offered (as of February, 2010) by the High West Distillery. The whiskey was actually obtained from Kentucky Warehouses that were meant for Canadian blends and High West considers that they were rescued. It's made from a mash bill of 53% rye, 37% corn, and 10% barley according to the product fact sheet, which will give it much spicier and robust notes than bourbons (which are required to be at least 50% or more of corn).

High West states they only possess 75 barrels of this particular whiskey... and then it's gone. They recommend it straight and not mixed with anything.
