A Midwinter Night Dram Straight Rye Whiskey 750ml
Raise the curtains for another encore of High West’s A Midwinter Night Dram straight rye; Act 8 Scene 5. This limited release series pays homage to William Shakespeare himself, with a true poetic tale of the tongue. Crafted using a blend of High West’s own Rendezvous Rye aged in new charred American white oak and matured in a combination of port and French oak barrels, Act 8 Scene 5 has a two-tier mash bill of 95% rye/5% malted barley sourced from MGP and 80% rye/20% malted rye sourced from HWD. This NAS rye has a nose hued by figs, raisins, citrus peel, and cherries hit with baking spice and syrupy French toast. The palate is quince preserves, strawberries, vanilla, and caramel-blended molasses.

A cool blanketed night here in the Metro Detroit region discovers me looking for a decent measure to end the night. A Midwinter Nights Measure on this mid winters night seems like an ideal match. Because of @Scott_E of the SDT bunch I happen to have an example. Act 4 scene 1 which comes in at 49.3% ABV in all likelihood common shading and non chill separated. The shading is a lovely dim red mahogany no uncertainty to some degree from the port barrel wrapping up. This is a mix of sourced ryes. I wont go into the piece honestly in light of the fact that I didnt trouble to find it. The nose begins with an enormous minty dill pickle. In that spot is a miss for me cant stand dill pickles. Proceeding onward. A decent arrangement of rye flavor and some oak oak that was sanded smooth with stale rye bread. Dill vegetable plunge a touch hearty. Rich English toffee caramel and some maple syrup. Extremely light natural products apricot pits unpretentious fruits. Vanilla at long last appears inevitably. At the base of the glass I got a startling note of overripe mango. I didnt get the port completion so I chose to add a little water to check whether I could cajole it out. Sure enough it worked yet it was dominated by the solid rye notes. A pink bubblegum note came through also. The sense of taste begins hot and sweet. Loads of rye and oak. Like the nose loads of dill and mint. Rich toffee caramel vanilla and a few natural products. Apple skins pears and cherry hack syrup. Very little else that I could select with all that dill in the manner until I included a little water. After that I got that equivalent bubblegum note and the subtle port completion. A medium to full bodied mouthfeel dry however somewhat sleek. Medium long get done with bunches of mint dill a portion of that bubblegum and rye. I truly had high trusts in this one in the wake of seeing all the recognition it gets. Lamentably the dill notes were simply excessively solid for my enjoying. I can tell its professional and most would presumably adore it however its just not my style. Of the ryes Ive had (and thats just a bunch) this one was most likely the heaviest on those dill notes. Happy to have attempted it since Ive had it on my list of things to get for some time however now I know not to search out a full jug. 3.75 which is as yet a good score as I would like to think. Good health

Act 2.7 Fruity flavors in advance that blur into a zesty rye with huge amounts of cinnamon. Finish is long with loads of dried natural products.

Overwhelming oak flavor forward. Intricacy creates after some time.

Act 7 Scene 6 Completed in french oak port barrels. Nose - Great Rye notes. Excessively sweet. I get some dusty oak however then there's an all around matured wine barrel note. Extremely extraordinary not excessively zesty. The rye and port truly make for a plum pudding like note. Taste - Light berries next to no straightforward at that point there's light oak notes. The completion draws out some vanilla and unpleasant oak. I like this one however I'm really frustrated given the publicity and the exertion I needed to experience to get this one. 2.5 - dessert rye whisky yet deficient with regards to multifaceted nature to be higher up.
