High West American Prairie


If you’ve never heard of High West you should rectify that and get on the bandwagon. They’re an Utah distillery that sources their whiskey and then makes all kinds of interesting expressions.

It’s #NationalBourbonDay so if you haven’t already, pour yourself a dram of your favorite bourbon, and get to celebrating.

If you’ve already had some bourbon now is a good time to refresh your glass.

Cheers!

Now onto the review.
