High West distillery are not only keen on whiskey, they're also dedicated to preserving and promoting the American West. Their "American Prairie Reserve" release is dedicated to a vast reserve project in Montana - a 5000 square mile land tract the size of Connecticut, restored to what Lewis and Clark would have seen.

This is another blend, typically composed of whiskies atleast 2 years old with a mashbill of 75% Corn, 20% rye and 5% barley malt. This is blended with a Bourbon with a mashbill of around 60% Corn, 35% rye, and 5% barley malt.

Tasting note: [BATCH 13D03 tasted] Bright and clear, deep gold / polished copper appearance. A shy opening builds intensity to reveal an atttractive, soft, clean bouquet that offers suggestions of creme caramel, mocha and fresh sawn wood. A full, round and perfectly poised profile delivers a deliciously dry and vibrantly peppery Bourbon mid palate featuring toffee apple and drying oak. Finishes satisfyingly warm, long and pleasantly peppery with hints of mint into the fade. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Copper color. Rich aromas of toffee, dried fruit, creme brulee, and touch of glued wood with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a long, honeyed grain cereal, fruit gum, charcoal, and spice finish A pleasant sipping whisky.
