High West Distillery Bourye
This is a blend of straight bourbon and two straight rye whiskeys (thus the name, which combines parts of both). Bourye is a combination of "Bou" for bourbon and "rye" for...well: rye whiskey. Because combining bourbon and rye is a bit unusual, we couldn't help thinking of the jackalope, the mythical creature native to the American West that is part rabbit and antelope. Western lore tells that when cowboys would gather by their campfires to sing at night, jackalopes would frequently be heard singing back, mimicking the voices of the cowboys. When chased, the jackalope will use its vocal abilities to elude capture. For instance, when chased by people it will call out phrases such as, "There he goes, over there," in order to throw pursuers off its track. Legend suggests the best way to catch a jackalope is to lure it with whiskey, as they have a particular fondness for the brown liquid. Once intoxicated, the animal becomes slower and easier to hunt.
