Drinking feel our Yes, It's Jimmy San Tangelo Jimmy, the wine guy. He is the proprietor, The Empresario, the Chief cook and bottle washer. At the wine Academy of Utah. And Jimmy is here to talk about whiskey. Campfire whiskey. Good morning, Mr Santo Angelo. Good morning, everyone. How's everyone doing? Thanks for having me on this morning. Talk about this great product. Yeah, what it let's let's just get right into it, huh? This This isn't unusual product, I think from Hi, west distilleries. Yeah, You don't see Ah blended whisky of this sort, with the characteristics often done in such a fine job. I gotta tell you so what the high West campfire whiskey is, it's a blend of three different whiskeys. It's a blend of bourbon, a blend of rise and then a blend of Pete ID. Scotch whiskey. So that's where you get that touch of smokiness from, I don't know books. Heat is real interesting. It's it's uh, the peat key 80 that Thai spell it. Pete is found about a meter down in the ground. You dig it up. It's this valuable substance, almost clay like And you dry it out and then you burn it. We used to use it for fuel in Scotland in the 16 17 hundreds, and that's where they smoked. They dried out the grain. And that smokiness from the peat attached to the grain. And when they went to the still from that barley that smoked petered barley. The cat is really cool. Um, smoky kind of maritime kind of this, Um Greatest like your next to a campfire at the end. At the end of the day, um, kind of aromatic through the whiskey. It really does. It smells kind of like a campfire, and there's even as sort of a taste reminiscent. The campfire sitting there and, you know, it's the end of the I've been on a cattle drive. And, you know, I bet with me into the cattle drive. Yeah. It's subtle. It's not over the head. It's not bunking on ahead like a single malt peaty Scotch whisky from Isla, Um, where it That's all it is. This is really well ingrained. It's uh, you know, this is also a blend of 4 to 8 year old whiskey's together, so it's got some barely statement to it. You have Brand new American Char bells that it's been set in a little bit of second use barrels, so it's a really handcrafted find product that's been blended together. No, You know what the best part is, You know, that's part. Sorry, Bill. The best part is that it's limited here in Utah, right? You can't fire used to be all across the country, but it's been narrowed down and because we love it so much here in the state and showed so much support. This camper was part of their limited release program of twice years, spring and fall will see a command now. This would be good in mixed drinks. I would think some sort of how would you mix this campfire? High West campfire whiskey? What would you do with it? So you can blend in two different ways. I like it as a take on the rusty nail, which has got to dream buoy something out the Scotch whisky for this campfire with the DRAM buoys. That I created that cocktail at the Metropolitan Restaurant back in the day with Karen Elson. Now you guys remember that restaurant? Of course. Sure. Yeah, And that was a lot of fun called it The American Joe Little take on it with having an American whiskey in that, But also I love this. I love this with coffee. Um, making an Irish taken an Irish coffee. Um, you use about an ounce of the whiskey three ounces of hot coffee, maybe a little sugar in there a little demure or sugar in the raw, simple syrup and then floated with just a little bit of heavy cream, not integrating it in. But just the floats When you sip that Yeah. You get a chill. You get the chill of the cream on the palate. You get the heat of the coffee and the sting of the whiskey. It all mixes real nice together. That sounds great. I have all of those ingredients available to me now they're just right here. S Oh, hi. Hi west Campfire whiskey, and you can only get it in Utah. Now. That's pretty cool, eh? So let's prices 64 bucks at the state stores, and it's pretty widely available right now, but that's it. It's a one and done released. So see it on the shelf. Grab it.
