High West Rendezvous Rye Whiskey was rated the top Rye Whiskey at the 2020 International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC). The Utah-based distillery’s high end Rye was awarded an Outstanding Gold and scored 99/100.

“An expressively classic rye nose through a sweet outlook, imparting buttery ghee characteristics. Bold and peppery with complex dark chocolate, chilli and baking spice aromatics lifted by herbal high notes. Elegantly balanced with a lingeringly spicy, dry finish,” wrote the judges about the winning Whiskey.
