    High West Rendezvous Rye

    Thinking about ordering a couple bottles, am I going to be disappointed?

    Better than winkle rye or thomas h handy? Any info or thoughts would be great and highly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Haven't had Rendezvous myself, but I must say: Is there anything better than Van Winkle Rye??

    I am also about to buy a few bottles of this 6yr/16yr rye blend. All reviews on the web have been excellent.

    But I'd like to hear from a SB member who's tried it.

    It's a very nice rye. Spice ballanced with vanilla. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

    I agree. While I feel its unfair to compare it to the van winkle, it is a solid and unique rye.

    It's very good. Probably my favorite of the various High West releases.

    I really like the HW Rendezvous. It's a very Rye rye whiskey with a lot of spicy notes and less woody than some older ryes can be

    Just did this as Vbt #313. It's different. Good, but different.

    If you don't want to risk too much, I swear I've seen it in ATL in a 350ml bottle. But, it may have been one of other HW expressions, though. Green's on Ponce.
