New Release: Wyoming Whiskey’s Single Barrel Bourbon

By The Bourbon Flight

KIRBY, WY. — Wyoming Whiskey’s Single Barrel Bourbon is available once again. This highly anticipated and exclusive release is the first batch since it last sold out in November 2020. Single Barrel represents the top 1% of bourbon barrels sampled each year by 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 products. The superb flavor profile, and limited availability, create a truly rare experience.

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 96 proof to maintain the character which defines it. 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 that capture this unique bourbon and moment in time, both of which will never happen again. Cheers to those who are lucky enough to cross its path.

Tasting Notes:

  • Color: Deep copper to mahogany
  • Nose: Bittersweet dark chocolate, roasted almonds, and browned butter range to dried dates with orange citrus blossom
  • Palate: Cinnamon, dark chocolate, dried date, fig, and raisin range to a buttered pastry and orange citrus
  • Finish: Long, smooth and eloquent finish with flavor notes including dark dried fruits and candied orange peel

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.
