ABOUT WYOMING WHISKEY
Crafted from grains grown in the Bighorn Basin, Single Barrel’s terroir reflects what the West is made of: intense elements and severe temperatures. Each barrel of Single Barrel experiences extreme temperature variations common in the high basin between the Absaroka and Bighorn Mountains as it matures. But the Temperatures reach 135° at the height of the warehouse during and then summer and plummet to 5° degrees in the depths of Winter. In the summertime, warehouse temperatures can swing 20 – 30 degrees and facilitate greater whiskey and wood interaction.
Each hand-selected barrel is bottled at 96 proof to maintain the character which defines it. Aged for a minimum of five years in char #4 oak barrels, no two barrels are alike in flavor. d by Wyoming Whiskey
- Color: Deep copper to mahogany
- Nose: Bittersweet dark chocolate, roasted almonds, and browned butter range to dried dates with orange citrus blossom
- Palate: Cinnamon, dark chocolate, dried date, fig, and raisin range to a buttered pastry and orange citrus
- Finish: Long, smooth and eloquent finish with flavor notes including dark dried fruits and candied orange peel
Vital stats: 96 proof, made from an undisclosed mash bill (though one could reasonably assume it’s 68% corn, 20% wheat and 12% malted barley, and as they’ve been known to make) so aged an undisclosed length of time (though other single barrels have been at least five years). Find a 750mL for a limited time in some 32 states for $99.
Appearance: This liquid is a very clear amber that slowly forms thick tears.
Nose: Fragrant like pecan pie, heavy on the vanilla extract – you can almost feel the oven warmth. Sweet hay wafts through on a wave of ethanol.
Palate: On the palate it’s sweet, syrupy strong bourbon.
Agave nectar on the attack, followed by that big, round vanilla bomb. Toasted black tea lingers on the mid-palate. This whiskey is relatively smooth with a bit of bite, and fairly well-integrated alcohol.
