High West Distillery Yipee Ki-Yay Straight Rye Whiskey – 750ML

One day, just for fun, we put some rye whiskey into barrels originally used to age wine. When we mixed the ‘vermouth-ed’ and the ‘syrah-ed’ we discovered an all-natural, not disgustingly sweet whiskey for the rest of us.

Where did “Yippee Ki-Yay” come from? Is it a real expression of joy popular with cowboys in the 19th century Western United States? Is it part of the greatest one liner in movie history? Was it influenced by the phrase ‘Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay’ from the 1936 hit song “I’m an Old Cow Hand from the Rio Grande” about a 20th-century cowboy who has little in common with cowpunchers of old and sung by Bing Crosby in the film “Rhythm on the Range” (also sung later by Roy Rogers and Frank Sinatra) and considered one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time? We’re not sure. But we are sure we like how we feel when we say it… and recommend you use it every chance you get.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Cinnamon stick, dried apricot, dark chocolate with cherry cordial, dried sage, brown sugar, toasted nut brittle
Taste: Bright cinnamon spice, vanilla, star anise, cherry cobbler, dried herbs, undertones of cedar wood
Finish: Spiced red berry jam, black licorice, and muddled spearmint

Serving Suggestion

Yippee Ki-Yay shows best at room temp, neat. With a little time in the glass sitting idle (just a few minutes) the bouquet really opens up to it's full potential
