The rye forms a beautiful base of vanilla, caramel and cinnamon; the port barrels enhance with plums and dried fruits; the French oak provides a spice accent. Their casks are the finest selected oak casks and only used twice to mature the single malt ensuring the maximum amount of flavour is always extracted during maturation, delivering a rounder, smoother taste. With time in the glass the greener notes dissipate and there is a lovely fruit jamminess along with a light Christmas cake note coming through. It seems to be fairly common knowledge that is passed around now that they are likely expected to be very similar within any given Act - Act referring to the sequential year in which it was blended.All of this boils down to the fact that Midwinter Night’s Dram is an inferior product to the MWND’s of years past. A gentle, sweetish but more sour and dry arrival, becoming quite toffeed during the development, with some wood sour, ginger, mixed berry jam, some burnt caramel. In recent years, High West has transitioned Rendezvous to a blend of MGP (95 percent rye, 5 percent malted barley) and in-house distillate (80 percent rye, 20 percent malted rye).

It was so cold and freezing that we avoided a snowmargeddon only because we didn’t have precipitation at the same time. Like the works of our favorite playwright, William Shakespeare, a glass of A Midwinter Night's Dram® is made to be savored, and over all too quickly. For us, A Midwinter Night's Dram tastes like a proper Christmas plum pudding with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits, and crème anglaise.Finish: Short finish with oak, spice, lingering honey and refreshing green almonds, definitely a drying finish and back of mouth numbing. Maybe you prefer a sickly sweet rye whiskey, but when you drown out the base spirit, it kind of defeats the purpose.

They’ve also opened up, via the finishes, the possibility that this will be different from and/or better than the whiskey that everyone else gets from MGP. Sipping near the bottom of the glass adds in some subtleties of pear liqueur served with a cinnamon stick. Taken altogether, I would make the argument that Midwinter Nights Dram no longer meets the definition of “allocated.If you can get this at retail, then I say this is an 8, although, I’m only basing it on this release. Additional sips bring out some berry and ginger; after that, each sip reminds me of preserve-filled thumbprint cookies from my family’s holiday gatherings. Come, gentlemen, I hope we shall drink down all unkindness” – The Merry Wives of Windsor, Act 1, Scene 1.
