I'm not a fan of the name, but I am a fan of this whiskey.
The bottle makes a point of explaining the "OMG" in the title - a historical reference to the Old MononGahela River, site of the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794.
OK, fair enough.
Name aside, it's a fantastic whiskey.
It's a 100% rye whiskey (80% rye, 20% malted rye) and I love rye... I may have mentioned it here, here, and here. It's un-aged so it is a clear distillate. I had long assumed that barrel aging was what gave character to a whisk(e)y, or brandy, or rum (etc.) but my recent interest in "eau de vie" has led me to trying other un-aged spirits - such as this. Sure, I could've purchased one of the new "moonshine" whiskies that are now widely available, but those are corn - and I want rye!
Regardless, without the influence of a barrel there is plenty of complexity to this whiskey. The nose has hints of tropical fruits (banana and mango) clove, pear, cinnamon, honey, pine, basil and fresh-cut grass. It has some heat but has flavors of dried fruits and spice followed by earthier flavors like must, ash, pepper, and tobacco. It has a long, dry finish with the clove and tropical-fruit flavors being most prevalent on the end too.
High West makes some great whiskey. I've had a couple of their others but as I only write about the bottles I purchase, then I am writing about this one. Nevertheless, this is a fantastic rye whiskey and I highly recommend it.
This whiskey and I are now BFFs! LOLz!
