High West "R/Bourbon" Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Oloroso Cask
R/Bourbon is delighted to be releasing our first High West Selection since 2015. The first time since the program rebooted in 2019, High West single barrel selections go way back and feature a variety of interesting finishes. This particular, Oloroso finish, release is an all-star single cask, a perfect barrel to kick off 2022's High West with. Featuring custom branding for r/Bourbon, this release looks just as good as it tastes.
Tasting Notes: Berries and cream, this High West takes sherry quite well. Orange marmalade, bold oak and toffee, blackberry, and date fruit combine nicely with a peppery complexity. Rich on the palate, ABV is just right. Sweet at first, fruity second, and then becoming dry and oaky with a nice tobacco finish. Complex and delightful. It's impressive how both the base whiskey and the finish each show through, neither overpowering each other and bringing tons of complexity to this single barrel.
