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 their Master Distiller, Sam Mead from Maker’s Mark, really know what they’re doing here. 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. We’re lucky to be the only retailer in California to receive a single cask of this special whiskey and after 6.5 long years in Kirby this whisky is showing astounding depth and complexity.
