The flagship whiskey from High West Distillery, Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870, the Rendezvous Rye is a blend of two exotic straight rye whiskies; one old, and one young. It marries the rich aromatic qualities of a 16-year-old, 95% rye mash bill whiskey with the bold, spicy properties of 6-year-old rye to create a full flavored, very complex whiskey.
Almost every other straight rye whiskey you can buy today is barely legal, with 51-53% rye in the mash bill. Not Rendezvous® Rye. It honors the way rye whiskey used to be made, with a high rye content and full, uncompromised flavor. With Rendezvous® Rye, you get a taste of authentic rye whiskey. We hope you enjoy it.
Rustic notes of oak and fruit, a little menthol. Slightly grassy, followed by sweeter notes of toffee and classic vanilla.
Oak spices, pepper and even some chillies. Needles to say, it’s rather spicy. Deep inside you’ll find a little treasure cove of sweetness, but then it’s back to the savoury notes from the nose.
The heat continues from the palate with fresh oak and tea leaves.
