High West Valley Tan Review

This is a 85% oat/15% malted barley expression from High West that was aged 2-4 years and bottled at 42% ABV.

Nose: Raw oats with varnish, compost, and a strange chemical note that reminds me of a freshly opened pack of printer paper.

Palate: Oats with isopropyl alcohol and construction paper.

Finish: Raw alcohol with oatmeal.

Rating: 52/100 – I guess oat whiskey just isn’t for me.

Value for the money: I paid $30 for this, but I think I’d rather pay $30 for someone to take this bottle from me instead.
