A 21 year old rye whiskey from High West in Utah, made in refill barrels, this is extremely rare, and made in very small batches. Each bottle is numbered.
Nose: Sweeter than the Rendezvous, with toffee popcorn, burnt sugar and fig rolls. It’s actually quite similar in aroma to Polish poppy seed cake and it develops with hints of rapeseed oil, crème caramel and cola bottle sweets. Maybe just a touch of lemon sherbet.
Palate: Explosively hot and spicy. It’s sweet too. A mix of Muscovado sugar, nutmeg, freshly grated cinnamon and green oak. Green figs, pear cider and charred wood and, as it develops, it becomes more and more like slightly sweetened Masala chai.
Finish: Just a hint of green oak and caramel, the spiced tea notes are what really carries it though. Quite a long finish, with just a trace of marjoram on the tail.
Overall: Brilliant stuff. Very rustic and herbal, oodles of character.

I have to admit to being a huge fan of rye whiskey. This one was quite a disappointment though. Surprisingly minty like diluted tooth paste, this is not a rye that I can recommend. Luckily I only bought the sample.

I have to say i personally dont agree with some of the MOM reviews, for me i found the rendezvous far far sweeter than the rye 21.TBH for my taste the rendezvous was too sickly sweet, this on the other hand is much much better balanced with savoury and woody notes.Correction: Alcohol content of this whiskey is not 53% but 46%The 53% on the bottle refers to the rye mashbill content which = 53%All in all though this is probably the best American spirit ive had.Another notable one was the William Larue Weller 2005 release, very good indeed if not a tad sweet.
