High West Son Of Bourye
High West Son Of Bourye whiskey is a blend of a bourbon (5 year old with a mashbill of 75% corn and 20% rye) mingled together with a rye whiskey (3 year old 95% mashbill). The remaining 5% in each is barley malt. Bourye utilized older whiskeys for the blend (10, 12, and 16 years old)
High West Distillery in Park City introduced its newest whiskey this month; and it’s called S.O.B. — Son of Bourye.
Owner David Perkins said the new spirit came about after tinkering with his original Bourye whiskey and “making it better.”
This second-generation spirit is a marriage of a 5-year-old bourbon whiskey and a 3-year-old rye whiskey — thus the name bou-rye.
It has been aged in new, charred white American oak barrels which gives it a rich vanilla and caramel flavors. It can be sipped straight or mixed into a cocktail.
And just like the first Bourye, the label on this new offering features two jackalopes, mythical animals that cross a jackrabbit with an antelope.
Perkins, with tongue firmly in cheek, said legend has it that these animals taunted cowboys and the best way to lure then in was with whiskey.
