Wyoming Whiskey "Private Stock" K&L Exclusive Barrel Strength Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1314185

This spectacular single barrel from the exceptional craft distillery in Kirby, WY is easily one of the best single casks we've ever received from a true craft manufacturer of bourbon whiskey. Wyoming Whiskey and its Master Distiller, Sam Mead, really know what they're doing over there. They are able to source their grain from local farms, age it properly in full size casks and offer an extremely affordable price even compared to industrial distillers in Kentucky and Indiana. We've tasted these over the last few years and found incredible improvements in their standard release as the average age increase, but we've never come across a craft whiskey quite as special. The fine distillery in Kirby is making wheated bourbons very much in the style of Van Winkle, Old Fitzgerald, Weller, and Maker's, but of course WW is different for in one very particular way, they don't heat the warehouses. That means that the whiskey is subjected to incredible weather extremes that exist in Kirby. The winters are much colder than Kentucky, so you don't get the same intensity of sweet oak early stages; instead the long slow maturation means more complexity. They may not age as quickly as their KY counterparts, but Wyoming Whiskey is without a doubt in the top tier of the nation's craft distillers. This barrel was distilled on February 23rd of 2015 and bottled on September 22nd of 2020 at a cask strength of 114 proof without chillfiltration. Nearly 6 years this classic wheater drinks like a dream.

Wyoming Whiskey? I have to admit that I am a tough sell, being from the land of bluegrass and bourbon! Still, this K&L barrel is something to behold, with its deep amber coloring, slightly softer nose, and the beauty of the winter wheat showing through. Also, baking spices of cinnamon and allspice await you in the glass. Don't let the nose fool you. On the palate it has a kick like a wild mustang. Big and rich with just the right burn to keep you coming back for more, highlighted by citrus peel and honeysuckle on this super long finish. I tip my hat to you, Wyoming. Mighty fine whiskey y'all got there!

This is our second barrel of Wyoming Whiskey and the first under the new regime. We were delighted when we heard the new owners, The Edrington Group, planned to continue the barrel program more or less without changes. Good aged wheated bourbon distilled a la Maker's Mark and aged on the dry plains of Wyoming turns out to be pretty damned delicious at cask strength and when you come across a choice barrel, it's very difficult to argue with it. This gorgeous cask is amber in color with a twinge of red. The nose starts out a bit restrained but opens quickly offering butterscotch, barrel spice, dried mint, sage brush, honey and orange blossom. Wood is definitely the star of the show, but isn't that why we pick up the bourbon. ON the palate the sweet corn and mellow wheat come through, but not without the continued barrel spice. It turns up mid-palate, but stops short of feeling astringent at all with a long creamy finish and a wonderful warming heat. Gotta tip my hat to Mr. Whiteley on this one, I think I like this one better than my barrel pick from several years ago.
