As the leaves turn and the air chills, High West graces us once again with their eagerly awaited annual release of A Midwinter Night’s Dram. This Act 11, Scene 4 promises a symphony of flavors, capturing the very essence of fall and early winter in a bottle.

Aesthetic Appeal:
The Midwinter series is renowned not just for its taste, but also for its visual appeal. Act 11, Scene 4 is no exception, boasting a stunning garnet/amber hue that is a feast for the eyes. The Ruby Port’s influence is evident, adding an extra layer of allure to this already captivating whiskey.

The nose has always been a standout feature of the Midwinter series, and this iteration continues that tradition. Rich and inviting, it offers a cornucopia of raisin, apricot, and other dried stone fruits. The traditional pumpernickel note transforms into a delightful gingersnap cookie aroma, while figs, fresh plum, strawberry jam, cinnamon, and clove add complexity and depth. It’s a nose that invites you to linger, to explore, and to savor.

On the palate, this whiskey is an explosion of spices and fruit, making it one of the most fruit-forward versions in the series. Poached cinnamon apples, figs, sweet plums, gingerbread, sweet cream, dried cherries, and strawberry jam dance on the tongue. The port presence is more pronounced than in previous iterations, adding a welcome layer of richness and complexity. Remarkably smooth with minimal ethanol burn, this whiskey is dangerously easy to drink.

The finish is long, warm, and continues the story told by the palate. Strawberry, fig, and cinnamon linger, while a slight tartness makes a guest appearance at the end, adding an intriguing twist to the tale.

High West’s A Midwinter Night’s Dram, Act 11, Scene 4 is a whiskey that captures the magic of fall and early winter. It’s a bottle that demands to be savored on a cold night, perhaps while wrapped in a cozy blanket, lost in thought. It’s a whiskey that makes you want to embrace the season, to put on your Uggs and leggings, and frolic in the falling leaves. In short, it’s a whiskey that lives up to its storied history and leaves you eagerly anticipating the next act.
