Wyoming Whiskey Releases Single Barrel Bourbon

Wyoming Whiskey Single Barrel Bourbon whiskey

Wyoming Whiskey has released the 2021 edition of its Single Barrel Bourbon. The Single Barrel release represents the top 1% of bourbon barrels sampled each year by Wyoming Whiskey.

Wyoming Whiskey Single Barrel is a rich, medium to full-bodied spirit defined by its western terroir. As a wheated bourbon, it delivers a flavor profile that is soft, yet complex, which sets it apart from more common rye-flavored single barrel releases.

“Once in a hundred barrels, or so, something very special presents itself,” said David DeFazio, co-founder of Wyoming Whiskey. “These barrels are selected for their exceptional aromatic profiles, complex flavor, maturity, and overall balance.”

Crafted from grains grown right in the Bighorn Basin, Single Barrel’s terroir reflects what the West is made of: intense elements, severe temperatures, and the rich history of Western pioneers. Each barrel of Single Barrel experiences extreme temperature variations common in the high basin between the Absaroka and Bighorn Mountains as it matures. Temperatures reach 135° at the height of the warehouse during the summer and fall precipitously 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 48% ABV. Aged for a minimum of five years in char #4 oak barrels, no two barrels are alike in flavor. Chosen from six rickhouses, each barrel yields approximately 220 bottles that capture this unique bourbon and moment in time.

On the nose, the whiskey offers aromas from bittersweet dark chocolate, roasted almonds, and browned butter to dried dates with orange citrus blossom. The palate delivers cinnamon, dark chocolate, dried date, fig, and raisin as well as buttered pastry and orange citrus. The finish is long, smooth and eloquent with flavor notes that include dark dried fruits and candied orange peel.

Wyoming Whiskey Single Barrel is priced at $99 and can be found at local retailers in twelve U.S. markets, including: Wyoming, Illinois, California, Colorado, New York, Georgia, Arizona, New Mexico, Maine, Idaho, Florida and South Carolina. It can also be purchased nationally through Wyoming Whiskey’s official website or other online retailers, including Reserve Bar, Flaviar and Caskers.

In April, Wyoming Whiskey teamed up with Harrison Ford for a collection inspired by the beauty of U.S. national parks. The Wide-Open Spaces Collection is an annual, small-batch production of Wyoming Whiskey that supports parks across the country in partnership with the National Park Foundation (NPF).
