High West Distillery Campfire Whiskey
One morning at the Bruichladdich distillery B&B, High West Founders David and Jane Perkins smelled peat in the air. The great ladies that made the 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 they had ever had. The combination of melon and sweet smoke really worked - so (naturally...) David 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 whisky.
