Wyoming Whiskey Small Batch Bourbon
Wyoming Whiskey // Wyoming, USA
This grain-to-bottle bourbon utilizes grain (corn, wheat, and malted barley) sourced within 100 miles from the distillery in Wyoming. Released in batches so ages (and tasting profiles) will vary; this batch released in the summer of 2014 is over 4 years old. It's refreshingly aged in standard 53 gallon oak barrels instead of much smaller barrels young distilleries tend to use as they help hasten the aging process.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Perhaps the idea of Wyoming and cattle ranches and cowboys influenced the aroma which seem to be more on the masculine side of the tasting wheel. This includes dark char, raw rope, and a lot of vanilla. Though a bit astringent initially, given time, the aroma becomes reminiscent of a watered down Old-Fashioned Cocktail (including the cherry and orange peel). A bit harsh on the palate, this is a spice driven, peppery bourbon with just a spoonful of sugar to help the "medicine" go down."
