    Re: High West ryes

    My brother in law and sister in law had us over for dinner after they installed a beautiful stone patio. He broke out the High West Rye double rye, my first experience, and I was very pleasantly pleased with it. Smooth, tasty and was perfect by the fire on a gorgeous end of summer evening. I picked up a licorice/anise taste of all things on the finish.

    Picked up a 21 yo Rocky Mountain Rye tonight. Been staring at it for a good long while and finally decided to take that plunge.

    Re: High West ryes

    I found a store that had one 16 and one 21, but if I recall correctly, they were 375ml bottles and the glass was that colored/silver/reflective looking glass.

    Anyone know anything about these bottles or were all the 375's this bottle look

    I know the very first 21yr 750's had that sort of surface but the later ones didn't. From what I can tell the whiskey inside is the same.
    Don't know about the 375's but a 375 21yr I got last year didn't have it.

    Re: High West ryes

    thanks for the info, I might get one. I think that 59.99 for the 16 and 89.99 for the 21 for 375ml bottles is too much. Id rather get the Handy that I see for that price

    Nice play,I couldn't resist as well get back to us when you open it up.I actually enjoy the subtlety of this rye due to the use of used cooperage,it is not what I expected at all,but in a good way!

    I bought 3x 375's of the 16 yr and they were in the irridescent bottles, I wish I could find more as it is delicious

    I picked up a 375 last year that was in the opaque silver bottle. $72.00! Sometimes I question my sanity. Up until then I had not been able to locate it so I took the plunge.
