High West Distillery
September 28, 2021 - It's the most wonderful time of year (in our eyes that is) - A Midwinter Nights Dram is back and as delicious as always! This limited engagement, and High West's most anticipated release features our High West Rendezvous Rye aged in Ruby and Tawny Port Barrels.
Class & Type
A blend of straight rye whiskeys.
Nose: Muddled blackberries, honey-poached figs, chocolate-covered cherries, toasted marshmallow, gentian root, star anise, hoisin sauce, well-worn leather jacket, warm blanket by the fire on a crisp evening
Taste: Refreshing with sugar plums, blackberries, spiced bitter orange peel, toffee cookies aside an orange tea, fresh dates, cinnamon strudel, brown sugar glass, dried thyme leaves
Finish: Aromatic bitters, pink peppercorn, violets, mint
How to Drink
We recommend that you enjoy this special spirit neat, due to its many layers of complexity, next to a warm fire as the snow piles up on the window sill. It also pairs beautifully with fig cookies.
WHY ACT & SCENE?
Besides being an ode to our favorite playwright, we use "Act" and "Scene" to organize our production run of this product. This is the 9th release, as denoted by the Act number on the bottle. The Scene corresponds to the bottling run, i.e. if you have 'Scene 4', that particular bottle comes from our 4th day of bottling.
WHERE TO BUY?
A Midwinter Night's Dram will be available nationwide starting in October. We recommend asking your favorite High West retailer about this release now. If you are in Utah, A Midwinter Night's Dram will be available at High West's locations in Park City and Wanship Friday, October 1st, 2021 at 11am, in addition to the Utah State Liquor Stores.
