Wyoming Whiskey has announced Outryder, a new Straight American Whiskey.
Outryder is Bottled in Bond and represents the company’s first use of rye, they report, along with corn and malted barley, to craft a straight whiskey from two distinct mash bills.
These two whiskies were laid down in November of 2011 at the behest of co-founder David DeFazio. The first mash bill contains 48% winter rye, 40% corn, and 12% malted barley and the second reflects a traditional bourbon mash bill of 68% corn, 20% winter rye, and 12% malted barley. All grains are non-GMO and grown in the Big Horn Basin of Wyoming.
Outryder has an initial nose of browned butter with cinnamon, clove and allspice, the company reports, along with freshly baked, dark-rye bread. Hints of orange blossom honey are on the palate, the company adds, while the spicy rye finish has hints of buttery toffee.
A total of 2,640 cases of Outryder will be available for purchase throughout the U.S. at the suggested price of $54.99 per 750-ml. bottle, beginning in mid-October.
