High West A Midwinter Night’s Dram is a blend of straight rye whiskeys using whiskeys from MGP and Barton Distillery. Aged in new, charred American oak, the rye is then finished in French oak and ex-port barrels and bottled at 98.6 proof. The name is a take off of Shakespeare’s famous play as this dram is a perfect way to keep you warm on a midwinter night. This is a seasonal release with different year releases listed as different acts. The scenes are just different bottling days. Note: As of 2018 (the 6th Act), High West has included their own distillate in the bottling.
