Review: Wyoming Whiskey Small Batch Bourbon

Wyoming Whiskey Bottle Hi-resNo, it’s not from Indiana!

Wyoming Whiskey is a craft spirit made in Kirby, Wyoming, from a mash of locally-produced corn, wheat, and barley. There’s no aging information available, but it’s on the youthful side. To wit:

Fresh on the nose, it’s hanging on to its youth through some lighter cereal notes that become more evident as you tuck into your first sips. The grain — more shredded wheat, less popcorn — is tempered with ample vanilla and caramel notes, but then jumps into a back end that evokes cracked black pepper, barrel char, some licorice, and cocoa nibs. The finish is surprisingly bitter and drying.

All told, it’s young and a bit brash at times, but not without some significant level of charm. Definitely worth a shot if only to see how craft distillers are working hard at keeping up with the Joneses.

88 proof. Reviewed: Batch #22.

    This would be a serious and excellent bourbon but for a few more years in the barrel. It’s just too young.

    I had batch 37 and just got batch 43. Even better in my view. My favorite go to bourbon right now. I suggest you try the newer batches and my bet is you will grade it higher.
