Blended Whiskey
A collaborative whiskey from High West, taking spirit from the USA and Scotland to produce a one-of-a-kind bottling. It's a blend of straight bourbon and rye, with high corn and rye mashbills respectively, with a peaty Scottish single malt. A fantastic combination of sweet corn, floral rye and smoky Scotch.

Straight Bourbon
Another bottling by High West while their own spirit matures, showing off their ability to select great whiskeys.
