Wyoming Whiskey Single Barrel Bourbon Set to Return in Limited Quantities
Wyoming Whiskey’s Single Barrel Bourbon is available once again, after having sold out its last batch in November 2020. Single Barrel represents the top 1% of bourbon barrels sampled each year by Wyoming Whiskey.
Crafted from grains grown right in the Bighorn Basin, Single Barrel’s terroir reflects the West, from intense elements to severe temperatures, per a news release from the distillery.
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 of this wheated bourbon is bottled at 96 proof. Aged for a minimum of five years in char #4 oak barrels, no two barrels are alike in flavor. Chosen from six rickhouses for its singular character and taste, each barrel yields approximately 220 bottles.
Wyoming Whiskey Single Barrel specifications: 48% ABV, MSRP $99, aged for a minimum of 5 years.
Single Barrel may 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 WyomingWhiskey.com or other online retailers, including Reserve Bar, Flaviar and Caskers.
