High West American Prairie Barrel Select Bourbon 750ml
The High West American Prairie Bourbon is a complex blend of straight bourbon whiskeys aged 2 to 13 years producing an aromatic whiskey that helps preserve the west. We were lucky to sample a few barrels to pick our own. The Mission Wine & Spirits Limited Release is the American Prairie finished 8 months in Islay Scotch barrels and bottled at 103 Proof for your enjoyment.
Hints of peat smoke on the nose with clove and honey. Surprisingly light on the entry with hints of maraschino cherries and dried apricot. The palate develops flavors of caramel, toffee, peat and oak. On the finish, the bourbon sweetness gives way to a smoky Islay finish.
High West Distillery is passionate about the American West's natural beauty. American Prairie is a superb premium bourbon whiskey dedicated to one of the greatest land preservation projects of our time. The American Prairie Reserve in Montana is a 5000 square mile land tract the size of Connecticut restored to what Lewis and Clark would have seen. High West donates 10% of after-tax profits from each bottle to the American Prairie Foundation.
