#wittermanseason comes to a close with maybe our favorite all around review yet. High West’s A Midwinter Nights Dram is “everything I wanted it to be”. The hype is real, folks. We loved everything about this whiskey. From the old world style that High West is known for, to the Shakespearean feel, to the red fruit and wood notes that we get from nose to finish, this years release is absolutely incredible. This bottle spurred great conversation as any good whiskey should. If you haven’t had a pour, go find one. Per the usual, we look at five different categories in our own terms: Bottle, Appearance, Smell, Value, and Taste.
