About High Country American Single Malt
High West says that it created the High Country American Single Malt out of its appreciation for single malt scotch, describing this whisky “an homage to the single malt category, with the spirit of the American West.”
Master Distiller Brendan Coyle has been developing recipes for single malts since the distillery’s inception. According to High West, Coyle has always known he wanted to incorporate the style into the brand’s offerings.
In a prepared statement, the High West said that the new single malt is matured in both freshly charred and second-use oak barrels, “providing a robust and flavor-forward profile.” The expression is said to have tasting notes of walnut shells, honey cereal, almond macaroons and ginger marmalade.
