(3.5 out of 5). Haven't purchased a bottle, but I tried 1.5 ounces out of a Glencairn glass, and added some water before sipping. This was an interesting experience. Whisk(e)y in its unaged form tends to be less palatable than, say, tequila or mezcal, but well-made rye may be an exception to this (I'd be lying if I said I knew much about unaged whisk(e)y, however). This had a robust, spicy character and a faint sourness that took some getting used to, but made it interesting to sip. However, more so than anything else, it made me excited for High West to release its own aged rye (as opposed to blends).

A fantastic whiskey but not one that belongs in every home’s liquor cabinet. It belongs in the liquor cabinet of any snob out there that thinks they know everything there is to know about whiskey. Aside from being very well-crafted, it’s an intricate, complex, and surprisingly different. It will stretch your preconceived notions of what a whiskey is and what it can do.
