John Hansell, Malt Advocate Magazine - "It's clean, crisp and quite vibrant (especially on the nose). The rye note is evident throughout. It starts out more like a high rye content bourbon, with the molasses, caramel, coconut cream, sweet corn and honey-kissed fruit marrying nicely with the dried spice (vanilla, cinnamon, brisk mint). But then on the latter half of the palate, the rye really kicks in. The whiskey gets bold, the rye becomes intense (almost piercing), with a dried spice finish.
It's back! Very similar to original Bourye in age profile and component whiskeys, we actually think this one is better. Bourye is a unique and very premium blend of rich bourbon and rye whiskeys making for a premier sipping whiskey and one of our (High West) all-time favorites.
Bourye® is a combination of "Bou" for bourbon and "rye" for..well, rye whiskey. Because combining bourbon and rye is a bit unusual, we couldn't help thinking of the jackalope. Honestly, we didn't think anyone would like the name!
