Utah High West Distillery visit & American Prairie Bourbon review

    There are hardly any other things in my life that I rejoice more than creating great memories. And memories I did create plenty during my trip to Salt Lake City, Utah by meeting up with close school friends.  We visited High West Distillery, hiked Mount Jordan and partied late night among other things. I will be doing part-2 of Utah visit because one blog does not serve justice to this awesome trip. For today's blog I am reviewing High West American Prairie Bourbon and Distillery visit. 
Enjoy that tasting notes that I savored with my buddies and some beautiful pictures of my Utah visit.
