High West American Prairie Rivesaltes Cask Finish Single Barrel Bounty Hunter Private Selection Straight Bourbon Whiskey

$59.95

High West has been choosing dessert wine casks to finish their bourbon for a couple of years now and offering them as private selection opportunities for retailers like us. Rivesaltes is a lesser-known AOC in France which is home to some of the most riveting dessert wines in the world and this cask finish Bounty Hunter single barrel is simply magical. American Prairie is an easy drinking bourbon to begin with, and it just gets so much better with this finish. A deep, savory tone melds with notes of butterscotch and vanilla. The palate is sublime with hints of herbaceousness peeking from behind the veil of rich, mouth-watering bourbon spice. A truly festive offering from high in the Rockies and your favorite house of whiskey!

Utah's first legal distillery since the 1870's, High West started with proprietor and distiller David Perkins' passion to make a great Whiskey. After learning the secrets of distilling and the art of blending, they set up shop in the Rocky Mountains in Park City, Utah. At High West, blends are king, and Mr. Perkins has a knack for choosing the right combinations of whiskeys. An innovator of the highest pedigree, he makes some unconventional and traditional blends. Choosing to take the route of transparency over secrecy, you'll always know what goes into the bottle. Dave sources some of the best ryes and bourbons available from multiple distilleries to blend into his final releases. At the saloon and distillery in Park City they make a mean couple of vodkas. Meanwhile a new distillery has been built just about an hour away where the new make spirit will rest until it is ready to be a part of High West's masterful lineup. As someone once said, there's gold in them thar hills. High West has hit the jackpot!
