Enchanted Elixirs: High West 'A Midwinter Night's Dram'

A Dram of Dreams in the Depths of Winter

Distillery Distinction: High West Distillery, nestled in the mountainous terrain of Park City, Utah, holds the honor of being the state's first legally licensed distillery since the Prohibition era. Renowned for its small-batch spirits crafted in a versatile 250-gallon copper pot still, High West embodies the pioneering spirit of the American West with its innovative distillation techniques and passion for whiskey-making.

Production Panache: 'A Midwinter Night’s Dram' is a testament to High West's creative ambition, a limited release that marries the robust character of Rendezvous Rye with the velvety richness of Tawny and Ruby Port barrels. With an alcohol content of 49.3% ABV (98.6 proof), this blend transcends the ordinary, offering a tapestry of flavors that pay homage to the complexity of its origins. The dual mash bill—featuring a high rye content from MGP and a unique malted rye from HWD—lays the foundation for a whiskey of unparalleled depth and character.

Sensory Saga: The nose is a festive prelude of poached pears, dried cherry, star anise, and a medley of holiday spices, evoking the warmth of a Christmas kitchen. On the palate, 'A Midwinter Night’s Dram' unfolds with rich notes of fig, cranberry, and dark plum jam on rye toast, interwoven with accents of gingerbread, sipping chocolate, and a hint of French oak spice. The finish lingers like the final note of a cherished holiday song, leaving a taste of Luxardo® cherry that echoes the complexity of a Manhattan cocktail.

Mystical Musing: Inspired by the whimsical words of Shakespeare, 'A Midwinter Night’s Dram' invites you to a theatrical experience of taste. The back label story, drawing from "A Midsummer Night's Dream," captures the essence of winter’s magic and the transient beauty of dreams. This whiskey is not just a drink but a narrative in each sip, a blend that tastes like a Christmas plum pudding adorned with mulling spices, dried fruits, and a creamy crème anglaise.

Pairings and Occasions: Best savored neat and ideally beside a crackling fire, this whiskey is a companion for contemplative evenings or gatherings that seek the warmth of shared tales and toasts. It complements the quiet beauty of snow-laden landscapes, offering solace and warmth as an antidote to the cold. 'A Midwinter Night’s Dram' is a celebration of the season, a liquid ode to the fleeting moments of winter joy and the cozy comfort of fireside reveries.

In every glass of High West 'A Midwinter Night's Dram', you find more than just whiskey; you discover a potion of warmth and wonder, crafted to carry you through the winter's embrace. It is a dram that stands as a beacon of craftsmanship and creativity, embodying the spirit of a season filled with wonder, reflection, and the warmth of human connection.
