Proof: 48.5% Alc/Vol

Variety: Rye

Region: Kentucky

Description: The new High Plains Rye is bottled at 48.5% and uses whiskey from four different American distilleries: MGP in Indiana, Middle West in Ohio, Kentucky Artisan in Kentucky, and New York Distilling Co. in New York. 

 

On the nose, it smells like a number of small production, 100% rye mash bill whiskies on the market right now, where the rye is absolutely front and center. There’s oak in the background, but it’s more akin to sticking your head in a bag of rye bread.

However, the palate deviates from that singularity and moves into a balance of sweet baking spices, toasted oak, rye grains, and a lovely sweetness from the wood. The finish is like a warm blast of all that goodness you get to revisit after every sip: cloves, brown sugar, cinnamon. The more I drink it, the more I want to keep drinking it.

Jim Rutledge was the first master distiller I met when I started in the industry, and I’ve always admired both his character and his whiskies. Hence, I have a sentimental soft spot in my heart for this release, but personal bias aside: this is a fantastic rye.

And it’s a further testament to the idea that a whiskey, when well blended, can be far greater than the sum of its parts.
