Bourye® (SOLD OUT)

Bourye® (SOLD OUT)

High West's proprietary blend and the world's only bourbon and rye marriage, makes Bourye® a rich and complex sipping whiskey
Bourye® is best enjoyed around a campfire while looking at the milky way. Sip straight or with a little water. Not recommended with ice.
Bourye® is a combination of "Bou" for bourbon and "rye" for..well: rye whiskey. Because combining bourbon and rye is a bit unusual, we couldn't help thinking of the jackalope, the mythical creature native to the American West that is part rabbit and antelope. Western lore tells that when cowboys would gather by their campfires to sing at night, jackalopes would frequently be heard singing back, mimicking the voices of the cowboys. When chased, the jackalope will use its vocal abilities to elude capture. For instance, when chased by people it will call out phrases such as, "There he goes, over there," in order to throw pursuers off its track. Legend suggests the best way to catch a jackalope is to lure it with whiskey, as they have a particular fondness for the brown liquid. Once intoxicated, the animal becomes slower and easier to hunt.
Bourye® whiskey's unique blend features three whiskeys: a 10-year-old bourbon with a mash bill of 75 percent corn, 21 percent rye and 4 percent barley malt (LDI); a 12-year-old straight rye whiskey that's 95 percent rye and five percent barley malt (LDI); and finally a 16-year-old straight rye with 53 percent rye, 37 percent corn and 10 percent malt (Barton Distillery).

John Hansell, Malt Advocate Magazine - "It's clean, crisp and quite vibrant (especially on the nose). The rye note is evident throughout. It starts out more like a high rye content bourbon, with the molasses, caramel, coconut cream, sweet corn and honey-kissed fruit marrying nicely with the dried spice (vanilla, cinnamon, brisk mint). But then on the latter half of the palate, the rye really kicks in. The whiskey gets bold, the rye becomes intense (almost piercing), with a dried spice finish.
