Wyoming Whiskey is releasing a limited-edition, sherry-finished bourbon this month.
Wyoming Whiskey Double Cask is the first barrel-finished product from the Wyoming-based distiller. Pedro Ximenez barrels were chosen to “compliment the flavor profile of specifically chosen barrels of five-year-old Wyoming Whiskey bourbon,” the company says.
Wyoming Whiskey Head Distiller, Sam Mead, developed the creation with the tasting input of industry specialist and master blender, Nancy Fraley. According to Fraley, the Sherry-Finished Bourbon features dark, autumnal notes of dried apricot and fig, stewed prune, black currant and toasted nuts. There are hints of candied orange peel, vanilla butter cream, and molasses underneath. The finish is comprised of dark, dried fruit followed by warm, brown baking spices.
A limited release of 110 cases of Double Cask will be available for purchase in Wyoming, New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Illinois, Texas and California. The first state to receive this whiskey will be Wyoming.
Double Cask retails for $59.99 per 750-ml bottle.
