High West "American Prairie" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Armagnac Finish Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1452677

The fabulous whiskies coming out of High West have long been regulars on our shelf, but it's the single barrel offerings that really take it to the next level. Each year they come through with a smattering of casks hand selected. These are unusual for a number of reasons. Firstly, they are actually finished blends re-casked in various oak. For instance the standard American Prairie is a blend of 2 to 13 year old Straight Bourbons from several distilleries. The blend is then re-casked for marrying purposes before bottling. At after the marrying period, this whisky -likely two barrels worth were dumped in to an old Armagnac barrel for almost two years before bottling. We're pretty picky about barrel finishes, but High West is consistently knocking it out of the park. The old Gascogne oak does a lot to frame the excellent bourbon flavors without masking or marring the inherent goodness that the High West blending team has created. Add the fact that she's clocking in at a healthy 102.2 proof cask strength and you've got one of the most exciting whiskies of the season. For once we've got descent stocks of a single barrel since the Armagnac cask can hold two whole bourbon barrels we were able to secure over 400 bottles of this beauty. Nonetheless, it will be years until we see another whisky quite like this one coming out of Utah. Expect unctuous sweetness and powerful vanilla pointed by exotic spice from the rare French oak.
