It's back! Very similar to original Bourye in age profile and component whiskeys, we actually think this one is better. Unique and very premium blend of old and rich bourbon (9 years old) and rye (10 and 16 years old) whiskeys making for a premier sipping whiskey and one of our (High West) all time favorites.
How to Enjoy:
Bourye® is best enjoyed around a campfire while looking at the milky way. Sip straight or with a little water. Not recommended with ice.
Bourye® is a combination of "Bou" for bourbon and "rye" for..well, rye whiskey. Because combining bourbon and rye is a bit unusual, we couldn't help thinking of the jackalope. Honestly, we didn’t think anyone would like the name!
Back Label Story:
The jackalope, also called an antelabbit, is an antlered species of rabbit, a cross between a jack rabbit and an antelope with horns. It is rumored that pockets of jackalope populations continue to persist in the American West, its native home. In the old West, when cowboys would gather by their campfires to sing at night, jackalopes would frequently be heard singing back, mimicking the voices of the cowboys. When chased, the jackalope will use its vocal abilities to elude capture. For instance, when chased by people it will call out phrases such as, “There he goes, over there,” in order to throw pursuers off its track. Legend suggests the best way to catch a jackalope is to lure it with whiskey, as they have a particular fondness for this drink. Once intoxicated, the animal becomes slower and easier to hunt. That’s why High West created Bourye, our proprietary blend of Bourbon and Rye, both favorites of real cowboys and sure to attract even the most finicky of jackalopes. Please see highwest.com for specific details about the different whiskeys in this bottle - we like adjusting things every now and then according to our mood. Bourye is best enjoyed around a campfire while looking at the Milky Way. Important! Jackalopes will attack if cornered or provoked. To avoid injury, quickly fall to the ground, remain calm and still, while humming the Roy Rogers song, “Happy Trails to You.”

A powerful, peat-smoke nose with seaweed and some sweetness, salty and sweet flavours with hints of wood and a long peaty-salt finish. Fact: Here, in the still mainly Gaelic speaking community around Port Ellen, on the island's south eastern shores, twelve men today craft pungent, dark Lagavulin, made on this historic site at least since 1816.

One of the superstars of the appellation (and vintage), the inky colored 2012 Cornas Les Vieilles Fontaines, which will see 24 months in 15% new French oak, is an extraordinary effort that exhibits blackberry, blueberry, liquid rock, underbrush and charred earth characteristics on the nose. Full-bodied, voluptuous and gorgeously textured, this concentrated, deep and layered effort should become approachable around age 4-5 and have two decades of longevity. Learn More
Handmade oak barrels, lightly toasted in the traditional manner, impart a wonderfully subtle flavor. In the 18th century, barrels were made by heating the staves over a fire of oak chips, allowing them to be bent and formed into a barrel shape. During this process, the inside of the barrel would become toasted, but not charred. For aging, several uncharred oak barrels, both new and used, to achieve the balanced complexity that complements this whiskey's traditional heritage. 51.2% ABV
