A limited release of High West Rendezvous Rye finished in both Tawny and Ruby Port barrels.  Voted a massive 96 points by  Wine Enthusiast 

Like the works of our favourite playwright, William Shakespeare, a glass of A Midwinter Night's Dram is made to be savoured, and over all too quickly. This limited-release whiskey is a sumptuous marriage of rye whiskeys finished in Port barrels. The rye forms a beautiful base of vanilla, caramel, and cinnamon while the port barrels provide notes of plum, dried fruit, and spice. Like a proper holiday plum pudding, it's brimming with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits, and crème anglaise. Sip it slowly through the coldest night.

Tasting Notes

 NOSE : Ripe marionberries, smashed plums, blood orange peel, Saigon cinnamon, heavily toasted Oloroso Sherry cask, leather-bound books 

PALATE : Blackcurrant jam, tart cherry crumble on a cedar plank, rose and pistachio pavlova, dark rye bread, candied ginger, Stilton blue cheese, smoked apple wood 

FINISH : Raspberry shortcake with whipped cream, black peppercorns, bergamot 

How to Enjoy

We recommend that you enjoy this spirit neat, due to its many layers of complexity, next to a warm fire as the snow piles up on the window sill.
