Whisky Advocate: High West Unveils A New American Single MaltDecember 5, 2019
High West Distillery has built its reputation on blending, but it’s making a complete 180 with its newest whiskey: High Country American single malt, debuting on Dec. 6. The Utah-based producer has long sourced whiskies for labels like Rendezvous and Double rye, A Midwinter Night’s Dram, American Prairie Bourbon, and the Bourbon-rye-Scotch mashup Campfire. And starting in 2018, it began blending its own house-made rye into some of these recipes. But until now, there has been very little whiskey from High West that was 100% house-made.
