A Single Barrel Bourbon with a thick mouthfeel and surprising palate.
 
At Wyoming Whiskey they are proud of their state and their Spirits. The distillery was founded in 2009 by Kate and Brad Mead and their friend David DeFazio. But they had the help of an experienced guiding hand — Steve Nally, former master distiller at Makers Mark. The first commercial Whiskey was released as a four year old in 2012, but they state that all current Whiskies are a minimum of five years old. Importantly, they state loud and clear that none of their Spirits are sourced. Every drop is distilled and aged on site at their facility in the Big Horn Basin of Wyoming, all the grains are farmed within one hundred miles, and the water comes forma local well sunk into an ancient limestone aquifer. And you’ve just got to respect that.
 
Given their reputation, it probably won’t surprise you that when the folks at Wyoming Whiskey say "single barrel," they mean it. And they tell you right up from that the average yield of a single barrel varies by the cold of the winter and the heat of the summer and how much the angels take. But the average single barrel yields 220 bottles. That’s it. The rest of the details are the same as their flagship Bourbon — same mash bill, same 44% ABV. But as you might also expect, single barrels vary a lot from casks to cask (that’s why Whiskey fans love them). Our sample had a pleasant, but surprising raisin and rancio quality usually found in older, barrel-finished Whiskies.
 
 
Smartass Corner:
Importantly, their flagship Bourbon is bottled at precisely 88 proof, which is 44% ABV. This is specifically to honor their home state of Wyoming which was admitted as the 44th state to the United States. And we think that’s pretty cool too.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
