High West American Prairie Bourbon Whiskey
High West American Prairie Bourbon pays tribute to the expedition of Lewis and Clark and to the frontiersman who pioneered the west. Made from a secret blend of a 2 year old bourbon from Indiana (made from a mash of 75% corn, 20% rye and 5% barley), a 6 year old bourbon from Kentucky, and a 13 year old bourbon from Kentucky, American Prairie is finished in American white oak casks with a #2 char on the heads and a #4 char on the staves. The varied char of each cask gives the bourbon a unique flavor profile " it has strong notes of vanilla and caramel married with notes of blood oranges and dark cherries.
Ten percent of the profits from the sale of each bottle of American Prairie will be donated to the American Prairie Foundation. The American Prairie Foundation is assembling the largest wildlife preserve in the continental United States, which, when complete, will be 5,000 square miles or roughly the size of Connecticut. "High West is passionate about the American West " our home " and more importantly we want to help preserve its culture, heritage, and natural beauty," says David Perkins, High West's manager.
High West American Prairie is a limited release, limited edition blend of bourbons. It earned a score of 92 points from Wine Enthusiast and was named "one of the ten best new bourbons" by Men's Health.
Sweet honey nougat nose, followed by notes of vanilla, caramel, oranges and dark cherries. A long, sweet finish.
