I bought something new today: High West Whiskey - Rendezvous. The name makes it sound terrible, doesn't it? But it isn't half bad! It is a blend of two straight rye whiskies. The first is a 6 yr old 95% rye; the second is a 16 yr old 80% rye. The nose is quite good, actually. You can really smell the grassiness along with mint and even a little honey sweetness. The initial taste is a bit of a letdown. It is mainly sweet, with only a touch of almonds, grass and bitterness. The flavors aren't very strong, but it is very smooth, almost like a bourbon. The finish is pretty good, though. The flavors of grass and spiciness linger for a good amount of time. The cost was around $45. Overall, it may not be worth the cost for most people who aren't rye-obsessed, but I would still recommend that you try a glass if you happen to see it in a bar somewhere.
