Our second rye from High West, the Rendevous name was chosen to celebrate the traditional annual gathering of Utah mountain men to exchange pelts and drink whisky.
Like the double rye, the rendezvous is a combination of two straight rye whiskies: a 6 year old 95% rye, 10% malt barley and a 16 year old with a mashbill containing 80% rye, 10% corn and 10% malted barley. The result is a complex whiskey with depth and character.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Buttery. Ripe Sultanas. Rich ginger cake. The spice is quite shy with a sherry, rummy and sherbety note.
Palate: Minty at first then a rising hint of rye spice, ending with more light minty vanilla with toffee apples.
Retails for around £50
