High West Campfire Whiskey Review

This is a blend from High West that’s made up of LDI bourbon, LDI rye, and a 100% peated blended malt scotch from an undisclosed distillery.

Nose: Muted rye bread with cardamom, vanilla cream, and oatmeal with cinnamon.

Palate: Young rye up front taking on more of a fresh grain note with a hint of acetone – strong pepper and nutmeg.

Finish: Oak turns quite bitter with a hint of smoke as rye notes fade quickly

Rating: 82/100 – I reviewed this sample before I looked at the makeup of the whiskey, so I didn’t realize there was any peated malt in there. Not sure if it’s a gimmick of sorts with this blend, or if I just didn’t pick up on it the first time.

Value for the money: These retail around $55 or so and I think that’s a pretty fair price.
