Campfire Whiskey, High West
Made with straight rye whiskey, straight bourbon whiskey, blended malt, scotch whiskey. No coloring or flavoring added. I was going to write something cheesy about cowboys, campfires and whiskey but i figured you might be more interested in how Campfire Whiskey came to be. One morning at the Bruichladdich distillery B&B, my wife and i smelled peat in the air - the great ladies that made our meals were simmering a bottle of peated whiskey and sugar! Later that night, they brought out dessert of ripe honeydew drizzled with the peated syrup. That was the most unusual, delicious and memorable ending to a dinner I've ever had. The combination of melon and sweet smoke really worked - so (naturally) I thought why not mix sweet bourbon and peat? The main flavor (or melody) is sweet honey from a ripe bourbon. The enhancing flavor (or harmony) is floral fruity spice from a mature rye whiskey. The accent (Satchmo's gravelly voice!) is smoke from a peated scotch whiskey. The proportions? Top secret. Campfire is carefully crafted from sourced whiskeys (see highwest.com for details). So as the sun sink low and the cold settles in, grab a bottle of campfire whiskey and gather round a blazing fire to warm up wind down your day, share stories, and deepen friendships. One taste of this sweet, spicy and, yes. Smoky whiskey, you'll know how it got its name. We like to enjoy campfire whiskey with s'mores. Or good-looking strangers.
