HIGH WEST RELEASES A MIDWINTER NIGHT’S DRAM ACT 9
Acclaimed Utah Distillery’s Highly Anticipated Limited Release Now Available
PARK CITY, Utah (September 29, 2021) — High West Distillery & Saloon, Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870, unveils the ninth rendition of A Midwinter Night’s Dram, a limited release of High West Rendezvous Rye finished in Ruby and Tawny port barrels. High West continues to bring the adventurous spirit of the American West to the art of making extraordinary whiskeys, experimenting beyond traditional bourbon and rye with new blends and flavor profiles, which translate into a fantastic line of limited-edition whiskeys every year.
"A Midwinter Night’s Dram is easily our most anticipated limited release blend of the year. It’s High West’s Rendezvous Rye finished in both Ruby and Tawny Port barrels for an additional 1 to 2 years,” said Master Distiller Brendan Coyle. “This year’s release, Act 9, provides notes of dark fig and blackberry layered over that wonderful spice character that great Ryes have to offer. We recommend sipping this spirit neat to experience its many layers of complexity."
This limited-edition blend of straight rye whiskeys opens with notes of muddled blackberries, honey-poached figs, chocolate covered cherries, toasted marshmallow, gentian root, star anise and hoisin sauce. On the palate, it offers refreshing sugar plums, blackberries, spiced bitter orange peel, toffee cookies aside an orange tea, fresh dates, cinnamon strudel, brown sugar glass, and dried thyme leaves. The finish yields aromatic bitters, pink peppercorn, violets and mint.
A Midwinter Night’s Dram Act 9 (49.3% Alc/Vol) will be available beginning October 1st. The spirit can be purchased at High West General Store in Old Town Park City and at High West Distillery on Blue Sky Ranch in Wanship, Utah, for $99.99 per bottle.
