“Are you sure we’re awake? It seems to me like we’re still sleeping, still dreaming.” – A Midsummer Night’s Dream, William Shakespeare.
Brought to you by High West Distiller, a Midwinter Nights Dram is the perfect whiskey to keep you warm through the coldest of nights. Inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the makers guarantee one taste will transport you to a dreamlike state.
The making of A Midwinter Night’s Dram starts with Rendezvous Rye. The rye offers a sweet base of vanilla, caramel and cinnamon. Then the whiskey is aged in port and French oak barrels. The process of aging in the port barrels enhance the whiskey with flavors of plum and dried fruit. The French oak barrels then offer the hint of warm spice. Midwinter also embodies a deep red mahogany color.
Smells of rich red wine on the nose. There are also subtle hints of raspberry and orange.
A velvety smooth taste, enjoy bursts of raspberry and cherries. Notes of ginger, vanilla cream, fruitcake and rhubarb are also present. The taste evokes similar flavors of the holidays with nutmeg and allspice.
A soft fade on the finish. A medium length with less spice, yet warming.
Midwinter Nights Dram can be described as similar to that of a Christmas plum pudding with the flavors of mulling spices, dried fruit and cream. We recommend sipping it neat by the fire alongside friends and family. Christmas may have come and gone this past year, but don’t that let that stop you from enjoying the rich taste of this rye whiskey.
“Well, then, we’re awake. Let’s follow him. We can tell one another our dreams along the way…”
