Straight Rye Whiskey
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 46% / 92 Proof
Rendezvous Rye celebrates the first recorded Whiskeyfest out West... in Utah.
The "rendezvous" was the annual summer gathering of mountain men to exchange pelts for supplies. Alcohol was not one of the "supplies" at the first rendezvous.
This oversight was corrected with a generous supply of whiskey at the second rendezvous in Utah's Cache Valley, resulting in a successful event and tradition for all subsequent rendezvous.
This flagship whiskey in the High West stable has a high rye content and is full, uncompromised flavour. With Rendezvous Rye, you get a taste of authentic rye whiskey.

Nose: A big nose of cinnamon stick, clove, vanilla, peppermint, caramelized sugar and dried fruit.
Taste: Very spicy, with cinnamon, crisp mint and fennel, underlying sweet notes of caramel, molasses, vanilla, macaroon, cocoa, and candied fruit.
Finish: Takes hold with huge rye spice, cinnamon, orange rind, and vanilla and it lingers for ages.
