Our own barrel of High West Rendezvous Rye 100 proof

Just tasted this again yesterday, what a fantastic Rye!

High West / TWCP Single Barrel Rendezvous Rye Whiskey...$64.99
100 Proof (bottled at a higher proof than the regular Rendezvous)
This is not your normal Rendezvous Rye.  It is Rendezvous aged for an addition 23 months in a Bourbon barrel!   This is one fantastic whiskey.  

Only 200 bottles produced.

"This whiskeys inside were married in used Bourbon barrel for 23 months of true bliss especially for the fine superbly intelligent and way cool The Wine and Cheese Place" - label (they know us so well)

Rendezvous® Rye is a blend of two exotic straight rye whiskies; one old, and one young. It marries the rich aromatic qualities of a 16-year-old rye with the bold spicy properties of 6-year-old rye to create a full flavored, very complex whiskey. The 6-year-old boasts an uncommonly high 95% rye mash bill. Almost every other straight rye whiskey you can buy today is barely legal, with 51-53% rye in the mash bill. Not Rendezvous® Rye. It honors the way rye whiskey used to be made, with a high rye content and full, uncompromised flavor. With Rendezvous® Rye, you get a taste of authentic rye whiskey. We hope you enjoy it.
