Today we taste and review High West Valley Tan.
Author: Whiskey Vault
I see those Corsair bottles on the back right shelf! You should make a video on your favorite Tennessee whiskeys.
Good recovery Daniel.. Rex spooked you there!
I want to get a second job just so I can buy all the high west bottles…. all are so great.
Recently, the reviews have become tighter with more in depth discussion of nosing/tasting notes. And we’re even getting some of Daniel’s stories without Rex interrupting or getting bored out of his mind. Almost feels like Daniel month. Sorry, Rex, but now I can’t wait for actual Daniel month. (Until Daniel inevitably somehow offends the whiskey gods and triggers another Rex week. That will be glorious too).
March is Daniel month
I need to find this!
Remember, If you say something for long enough, it becomes true.
Most high west is 46%. Definitely one of my top 5 whiskeys.
Who else but Daniel would recall “blackberry honey” from honey dry week as a tasting note?
March should be “Month of the Mooch” or “Moochy March”…..
Interesting, I’ve never tried a wheat whiskey.
I’m from Utah. Rendezvous rye is what got me into whiskey. Problem with High West is their stuff used to be so affordable. They are not worth the price anymore, unfortunately.
I love roundabouts, I just got back from Grand Cayman where they drive on the left, it’s really trippy going thru roundabouts in the opposite direction.
You guys need to try Dos Maderas 5 + 5 and review it!!
F Rex! March is Daniel month!
Take a look at the magic roundabout in Hemel Hempstead
Have you guys heard of Aquavit Whiskey from Devils Head Distillery…interesting story!
Porter Rockwell, was more then a lynch man.. he made it possible for all that is “bad” in Utah, happen. Most of Utah’s “real” history happened just outside SLC (Park City). Ask about deer valley one day.
The physical roundabouts are fine, it’s the idiots that don’t know how they work that make them hell. Especially the two lane ones where people end up going the wrong way around and driving head on into other people. I’ve got countless videos from my dash cam of idiots in the Four!!!!!! roundabouts near my house.
This comment is amazing!
Rex and Daniel aren’t polar opposites though. They have JUST enough in common to drive each other ESPECIALLY crazy.
Hey guys! Im very new to Whisky and this channel in general. Im looking for a whisky that’s fairly sweet and very smooth. Something that goes down like water. Any recommendations?
Oh no, we Canadians apologize.
Wiki uses this video as a reference for daniel month
As I understand it
Angel Share is the percentage of loss from that years total amount – not the the percentage of the full barrel. So you have can have older stuff because with the smaller total you have less gross loss.
year one loss is 5% of 53 gallons (2.65 loss)
Year two loss is 5% of 50.35 gallons (2.52 loss)
fun fyi for the kiddies: roundabouts are also known as rotaries, turnstiles, and “oh $*@%” by truckers.
Yeah roundabouts are great if you drive a gokart.. They don’t make them big enough for a crew cab long box towing a trailer.. Cool idea, but make them bigger.. LOL
I love watching Rex and Daniel but, I still hate roundabouts.
Problem with roundabouts is that dummies here in the US didn’t grow up with them and cause traffic jams when they encounter them. Hated driving a bus through one in college because I knew some dumdum was gonna slam on their brakes in the middle of it or someone would come flying in and try to cause an accident because they didn’t yield to traffic already in the circle.
What happened to the story? You built it up, called him a lawman/henchman, and then awkward cut and “Are you done?, “Yeah. that was it”… Huh?
